Travelling to the small towns and remote village halls scattered throughout Scotland and Wales, the Fantastic Francis Hardy, together with his indefatigably loyal wife, Grace, and their born-into-show-business manager, Teddy, promises healing to the hopeless and restoration for the sick and suffering. Each of their stories in turn sheds shifting shards of light on events. Only one thing is certain however; Faith Healer Francis is at the mercy of his ‘unreliable’ gift. So where does truth lie? Showman? Con-man? Villain? Victim? A haunting exploration of love, loss, belief and sacrifice, Faith Healer is often funny, passionate and tender. It will take you to the heart of what it means to love, struggle and believe. Brian Friel is one of Ireland’s greatest playwrights. Author of Translations and Dancing At Lughnasa, Faith Healer is considered his masterpiece. Starring George Costigan who is best known for portraying Bob in the 1987 film Rita, Sue and Bob Too as well as his more recent role in Happy Valley. Box Office Tel:- 01796 484626
