Faith Healer is widely recognised as one of the masterpieces of Ireland's greatest living playwright.
Frank is a faith healer. Traveling with his two companions, Grace and Teddy, he roams Scotland and Wales healing the sick. By the edge of forests, at the base of mountains, in remote coastal villages, the lame, the ill and the broken hearted gather for the Fantastic Francis Hardy: Faith Healer.
But who is Frank? Are his miracles real or imaginary? And what is the true price the saved must pay? Haunting, tender and passionate, Faith Healer takes us into the heart of what it means to believe. As we are drawn deeper into the world of Frank and his companions, our certainties fall away as we are led towards the play’s magisterial, unforgettable climax.
This new production of Brian Friel’s masterpiece is directed by Andrew Flynn.
