FAITH HEALER by Brian Friel
Three Perspectives, One Truth?

“But I can tell you this: there was one thing I did know, one thing I always knew right from the beginning I always knew, drunk or sober, I always knew when nothing was going to happen.”

Frank Hardy. Faith Healer.

Traveling through remote and lonely villages in Scotland and Wales, Frank works his magic, curing the sick and giving strength to the weak.

Frank has a gift. A gift of healing. His powers are real, are they?

Faith Healer is considered to be Irish playwright Brian Friel’s masterpiece.

It is a haunting and spellbinding piece of theatre that tells the story of Frank, his wife Grace, and manager Teddy who each take turns to recall their lives together, unveiling a pool of fractured and contradictory memories.

“Absorbing fiction... brilliant and profound... a great play.” - The Irish Times
"One of those rare works of art audiences re destined to recall as a deeply personal experience. A powerful piece of writing." - The New York Times
"The writing is beautiful, supple, rhythmical, charged with the slow, sure throb of despair and enchantment…" - The Observer
"One of the most quietly powerful and influential plays of the last 30 years." - The Guardian
