Brian Friel’s “Molly Sweeney” Was Inspired by a True Story Chronicled in a Scientific Article by Oliver Sachs
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.”
Like any four-part program of contemporary one-act plays, “Oh Sh!t, It’s Another Evening of One-Act Plays,” presented by Bare Theatre, is a mixed bag. But “The Shakespeare Zone” is a splendid spoof of reality television, TV game shows, commercials, and iconic television series, such as “Law & Order,” “CSI,” etc.
Bare Theatre concludes its sixth season with “Oh Sh!t, It’s Another Evening of One-Act Plays,” a program of four contemporary one-act plays, on Feb. 17-27 at Common Ground Theatre in Durham.
