Brian Friels’s Faith Healer is back by popular demand with the recorded version of the live show available to watch again from 20–22 Jan 2021 at 7.30pm.
Faith Healer was performed and streamed live from The Old Vic stage to 71 countries across the globe in Sep 2020.
‘Just a con, isn’t it? Just an illusion, isn’t it?’
The Fantastic Francis Hardy (Michael Sheen) travels the most remote corners of Wales, Scotland and Ireland attempting to heal those who wish to be healed. His wife Grace (Indira Varma) and manager Teddy (David Threlfall) complete this nomadic triptych, each with their own telling of the loss, love and struggle of life on the road with a seemingly predestined Faith Healer.
Brian Friel’s masterful and haunting Faith Healer is a kaleidoscopic, ever shifting exploration of the power of belief, as the contradicting recollections of these three characters seek to reconcile with the past.
