Brian Friel’s “Molly Sweeney” Was Inspired by a True Story Chronicled in a Scientific Article by Oliver Sachs

"Molly Sweeney" opens on Sept. 29th at Burning Coal Theatre

The story of Molly Sweeney’s passage from blindness to sight is a moving meditation on worlds of the sightless, the seeing, and of those lost in-between. The play was inspired by an article by Oliver Sachs (“The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat”) entitled “To See and Not See.”
