IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE DIVISION OF MEDICAL ETHICS AND HUMANITIES AND THE DEPARTMENT OF THEATRE
Written by Ireland’s master storyteller Brian Friel, and inspired in part by researcher Oliver Sacks’ essay “To See and Not See,” Molly Sweeney tells the story of a woman who was blind since childhood. Prompted by the “medical miracle” hopes of both her husband and her surgeon, Molly agrees to a procedure to restore her sight. What follows, in this staged reading featuring U of U Theatre faculty, is a riveting drama about the consequences of pursuing a “cure” at any cost.
