    Brian Friel, Ireland’s master storyteller (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.       "Brian Friel has been recognized as Ireland's greatest living playwright… Molly Sweeney …confirms that Mr. Friel still writes like a dream." —NY Times     "Dispassionate eloquence and psychological honesty…Brian Friel's writing has such vitality and warmth, such kindly accuracy of observation." —London Sunday Times
