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
Reviews & Ratings
Four improv troupes, Precipice, Fling, Blank Slate, and Just Moxie perform together for the first time in an evening of improvised comic plays. Each show is anchored by Bob Adler and Ric Andersen of Precipice, who will improvise an entire comic play, creating all the characters and situations themselves using nothing but their skill, talent, and imaginations, and audience suggestions. Each show also includes at least two of the other troupes improvising their own one-act plays, providing contrasting comic styles and characters.
Precipice creates original, never-seen-before and never-to-be-seen again, totally improvised, full-length comic plays. *
Experience the excitement* of witnessing a new comic play unfold as it is being created from your suggestions.
What kind of suggestions? Two completely unrelated locations. Locations so different that Shakespeare himself would have a hard time weaving them into a story. (They like the challenge.) *
How unpredictable does it get?* Shows from last season included “The Greek Island and the College Admissions Office” and “Home Depot and the Earth-bound Meteor.” *
What will the next play be about?* Only you know. Come to the show ready to suggest a favorite location to play your role in creating the performance!
