OPENING WEDNESDAY 27 JANUARY for 23 PERFORMANCES ONLY- FAITH HEALER by Brian Friel

'One of the finest plays written in the English language' The Irish Times

Having toured to Sydney, Edinburgh and Dublin in 2009, the Gate Theatre is delighted to begin 2010 with one of Friel's greatest masterpieces, Faith Healer.

Starring
Ingrid Craigie · Kim Durham · Owen Roe


Arguably Friel's greatest play, Faith Healer influenced a generation of Irish writing for the theatre. Frank Hardy, faith healer, has spent a life time touring the decayed villages of Scotland and Wales with his manager, Teddy, and his wife/mistress, Grace.

The story of their touring and of their fateful return is told in separate, often contradictory, stories by Grace and Teddy and Frank himself. These narratives taken together make up a mosaic that is both seductive and terrifying.

Tickets:
Monday €25
Tuesday - Thursday €27
Friday / Saturday €30
