Written by celebrated dramatist, author and director Brian Friel (Philadelphia, Here I Come!, Dancing at Lughnasa), Faith Healer centers on Frank Hardy, his wife Grace and his manager Teddy. Hardy is an Irish faith healer who travels through the U.K. performing his "gift," which sometimes fails him. This story of love, memory, belief and choice unfolds over the course of four monologues, presenting the plot from multiple perspectives. A critical darling since its 1979 Broadway debut, Faith Healer has enjoyed numerous revivals. Learn More
