“Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” The quote, from Antoine de Saint Exupéry’s The Little Prince, could well summarize the feelings of the title character in Brian Friel’s Molly Sweeney.
If you’re wanting a loud, splashy spectacle with all the substance of cotton candy, you won’t find it at Studio 54. If, however, you’re seeking a quiet and thoughtful play that gently reels you in for a compelling 90 minutes, you’ve come to the right place.
