By Brian Friel The Fantastic Francis Hardy: charming charlatan and showman or intermittently-gifted miracle worker?
Accompanied by his wife (or maybe mistress) Grace, and ex-vaudevillian manager Teddy, Francis travels the fading towns of Ireland, Scotland and Wales, scratching out a living curing the ill, strengthening the weak and liberating the doomed of their hope.
Wrestling with faith, memory and truth, Faith Healer is a story of the ties that bind us together, sometimes to our detriment.
The career defining masterpiece of the incomparable Irish great Brian Friel (Dancing at Lughnasa, Translations) the play sings with wit and tragedy as Francis, Grace and Teddy’s versions of their shared history slowly intertwine. Faith Healer comes to Adelaide in a highly awarded, hit production from director Judy Davis starring the exceptional Colin Friels, Alison Whyte and Paul Blackwell.
Join us for a mesmerising night in the theatre. You might just leave a believer.
