Molly, a woman blind since infancy, undergoes an operation to try to restore her sight.

Vortex favorites Tim Crofton as Frank, Emily Carvey as Molly and Paul Ford as Mr. Rice make up the cast.

Director Epstein
The director, Marty Epstein: "I love this play and am thrilled to re-visit it with this very exciting cast. Deceptively simple, yet richly multilayered—combining both an insightful story about the way we perceive our existence with an allegory for our times—Friel creates an unforgettable theater piece, painting scenery and rousing emotions with nothing more than the simple purity of beautifully rendered words."
