In My Mind’s Eye explores how Frances Browne’s intense imaginative inner life and creativity transformed obstacles into unbelievable artistic success. Presented as part of the Frances Browne Literary Festival.

Frances Brown is a gifted writer. She is blind and she is poor. She needs the assistance of a scribe to complete her work, a job undertaken by her sister Rebekah. But just when Frances’ career is beginning to take off Rebekah leaves her to get married. Her departure is devastating for Frances, leaving her alone and at a loss. Yet, with the aid of a new scribe and by capturing the creative treasures of her intense imaginative inner life, Frances transforms this experience into her biggest artistic success yet. Directed by Emily Foran, this rehearsed reading provides a flavour of the full production to come in 2022.

Written by Shirley-Anne Bonner.
