Arguably Friel’s greatest play, Faith Healer influenced a generation of Irish writing for the theatre. Frank Hardy, faith healer, has spent a life time touring the decayed villages of Scotland and Wales with his manager, Teddy, and his wife/mistress, Grace.

The story of their touring and of their fateful return is told in separate, often contradictory, stories by Grace and Teddy and Frank himself. These narratives taken together make up a mosaic that is both seductive and terrifying.
