Rachel O’Riordan (Iphigenia in Splott, A Doll’s House) directs a major revival of Brian Friel’s “masterpiece” (The Guardian).
Faith Healer is one of Britain’s top 100 plays of the 20th Century. Its spellbinding allure, and powerful stage mystery has thrilled audiences across the world since it first opened on Broadway in 1979.
With its poetic language and raw emotional intensity, Faith Healer is a masterful piece of theatre that will linger in your thoughts long after the final curtain.
Faith Healer runs from 14 March 2024 until 13 April 2024 at Lyric Hammersmith, London.
What's the story of Faith Healer?
Trawling through the remote and lonely villages of Ireland, Wales and Scotland is, The Fantastic Frank Hardy, who for one night only promises miracle cures for the sick and the suffering. He might just be more showman than shaman but… the promise of the impossible is irresistible.
But it’s Frank’s shapeshifting gift and proclamations that bring him into conflict with his wife Grace and manager Teddy. As they each recount their lives together, they unveil a well of fractured memories.
