Synopsis: In Molly Sweeney, Ireland's master storyteller Brian Friel (Dancing at Lughnasa, Translations, Philadelphia, Here I Come!) has devised a riveting contemporary drama about the terrible consequences of a medical miracle. Molly has sat in happy, capable, independent darkness since she was ten months old. When her husband, a restless, unemployed enthusiast makes her blindness his latest cause, he consults a once famous star surgeon who, despite being half drowned in Irish whiskey agrees to attempt to restore Molly's sight.

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"It takes two hours to watch “Molly Sweeney” at the Irish Repertory Theater. But you’ll spend much more time thinking about it afterward. A deeply moving meditation on hope, change and despair, it’s a compelling piece of theater, one in which the ending applause is only the beginning of the play’s effects."

ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW:

"The gift of sight might not be such a boon for a blind person, who would have difficulty physically and mentally processing what they were seeing. This dilemma is explored by Tony Award-winning playwright Brian Friel in his compassionate, bittersweet tragedy, "Molly Sweeney," that opened Sunday night in a potent revival at the Off-Broadway Irish Repertory Theatre."

TIME OUT NEW YORK REVIEW:

"Considering how well Brian Friel is known for his poetic voice, it’s a bit surprising that his Molly Sweeney is so decidedly undramatic. The Irish playwright serves up plenty of masterfully imagistic language in his 1994 play; problem is, it’s all delivered in the past tense via a trio of alternating monologues (a format he used to better effect in Faith Healer).

THEATERMANIA REVIEW:

"Let's quickly discard any notion that Brian Friel's Molly Sweeney -- now being revived at the Irish Repertory Theatre under Charlotte Moore's skillful direction -- is a play. Not that it matters, because Molly Sweeney is an entirely enthralling story told by three narrators in a two-act series of alternating monologues: Donegal habitue Molly Sweeney (Geraldine Hughes), her husband Frank (Ciaran O'Reilly), and local ophthalmologist-surgeon Mr. Rice (Jonathan Hogan)."

BACKSTAGE REVIEW:

"My usual reaction to monologue plays is to think, "Why didn't the author just write a novel?" If your characters aren't going to interact, only telling us the story rather than living it, we might as well be reading it on a cozy couch with a nice cup of tea. Brian Friel's "Molly Sweeney," which won the 1996 New York Drama Critics Circle Award as best foreign play, is the rare exception to this rule."
