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. The results are not what was hoped for. This powerful drama tells Molly’s story through monologues from the perspective of three characters: Molly, her husband Frank, and her surgeon, Mr. Rice. The three actors do not interact.
Molly: late 30s/early 40s. She is sensitive, kind, and independent.
Frank: 40s. Molly’s husband. Full of energy for his latest project, which is usually a failure. His descriptions of his projects are often comic (although not intentionally).
Mr. Rice, Male, late 40s/50s. Once a renowned eye surgeon, who is now an alcoholic after his wife left him. Although compassionate, he sees restoring Molly’s eyesight as a way of restoring his career. His “swanky” accent and cynicism hides his insecurity.
WHAT IF I CAN’T MAKE THE AUDITION TIMES?
You may submit a resume in advance of the auditions to firstname.lastname@example.org, but we will be trying to fill the roles from the auditions so cannot guarantee an audition at another time.
