Courtney is sixteen and paralyzed. But her eyes can do what Elva's can't - read the tiny print in the old woman's 1910 edition of Baedeker's ITALY. Reluctantly, Courtney agrees to Elva's strange request: to lead a journey that takes place solely in the mind's eye.
The trip doesn't go as planned. Taking them from Naples to Rome to Florence, it becomes not simply an escape into art and fantasy but a harrowing encounter with despair, revenge, and the need for love. Told entirely in dialogue, MIND'S EYE draws poetry, Renaissance art, and the power of the imagination into a riveting work that will long resound in theatre of the reader's own mind.
