Faith Healer

In a Welsh village the sick come in search of a cure.
They want a moment with Frank, the mercurial showman, who offers hope and salvation. Because Frank has a gift. A gift of healing.

Through the 1950s and 1960s, Frank and his wife, Grace, travel to remote corners of Scotland and Wales, before eventually returning to Frank’s native Ireland. Accompanied by his manager Teddy, they move from village to village, bringing with them an unpredictable mix of theatricality and the spiritual.

Using four enthralling monologues to interweave the stories of these three intriguing characters, Brian Friel takes us on an extraordinary journey of shifting perspectives and uncertain memories.

A drama by Brian Friel, one of Ireland’s greatest playwrights. His major works include Translations, Dancing at Lughnasa, Molly Sweeney and Philadelphia, Here I Come!
