Molly Sweeney has been blind ever since she was a child. But that has never limited her sheer joy at everyday life. When she was a girl, her father taught her to identify things by guiding her to touch every flower, shrub and tree in their walled garden, putting her at ease with her world.
Created by Brian Friel, one of Ireland’s greatest playwrights, this thought-provoking modern drama tells the tale of Molly’s emotional journey. When she marries the unemployed Frank, they embark together on a relentless campaign to restore her sight. Packing a heart-rending dramatic and emotional punch, their quest results in them paying a terrible price…
This reading in both Cantonese and English by some of Hong Kong’s leading artists and performers will bring you into a touchingly intimate relationship with the play’s unfolding events.
Stay for a sharing session after the reading.
