Written by Ireland’s master storyteller Brian Friel, and inspired in part by researcher Oliver Sacks’ essay “To See and Not See,” Molly Sweeney tells the story of a woman who was blind since childhood. Prompted by the “medical miracle” hopes of both her husband and her surgeon, Molly agrees to a procedure to restore her sight. What follows, in this staged reading featuring U of U Theatre faculty, is a riveting drama about the consequences of pursuing a “cure” at any cost.
Presented in partnership with the Divison of Medical Ethics and Humanities and The University of Utah Department of Theatre
