A Bristol Old Vic production
Frank is a faith healer. Travelling with his two companions, Grace and Teddy, he roams the British Isles healing the sick. By the edge of forests, at the base of mountains, in remote coastal villages, the lame, the ill and the broken hearted gather for the Fantastic Francis Hardy; Faith Healer. But who is Frank? Are his miracles real or imaginary? And what is the true price the saved must pay?
Haunting, tender and passionate, Faith Healer takes us into the heart of what it means to believe. As we are drawn deeper into the world of Frank and his companions, our certainties fall away as we are led towards the play's magisterial, unforgettable climax.
Previously revived by the Almeida and then on Broadway, Faith Healer is a majestic play about the power of love and faith to change our lives.
Directed by Simon Godwin, Bristol Old Vic's Associate Director. Simon's recent credits include Far Away at Bristol Old Vic, The Winter's Tale for Schtanhaus, Headlong and the Nuffield Theatre Southampton, Mister Heracles at the West Yorkshire Playhouse and Wanderlust at The Royal Court Theatre.
