Molly Sweeney tells the story of its title character, Molly, a woman blind since infancy, who undergoes an operation to try to restore her sight. Like Friel’s Faith Healer, the play tells Molly’s story through monologues by three actors, in this case Molly, her husband Frank, and her surgeon, Mr Rice. Through their words we, the audience, witness their jealousy, their fear and their desperation for love.
