Faith Healer, at the Lyceum

“Teddy’s driving as usual, and I’m in the passenger seat, and he’s immediately behind us, the Fantastic Francis Hardy, Faith Healer, with his back to us and the whiskey bottle between his legs.”

The lame, the ill and the broken-hearted all gather for the Fantastic Francis Hardy: Faith Healer. Travelling with his two companions, Grace and Teddy, Frank roams the small towns of Scotland and Wales healing the sick, trying to find a way home.

These are their stories  – haunting, tender, funny  and passionate, taking us to the heart of what it means to love and to believe.

One of Ireland’s greatest playwrights, Brian Friel is best known for his works Philadelphia Here I Come!, Translations and Dancing at Lughnasa.  Faith Healer is Friel’s masterpiece, defining his uniquely poetic and intensely human voice it is a landmark play in the rich landscape of Irish theatre.

Faith Healer is directed by John Dove, Associate Artist at The Lyceum, most recently directing the widely acclaimed Pressure by David Haig.
