Setting. Scotland and Ireland

Presented in four monologues by three characters. Brian Friel’s Faith Healer is the story of Francis Hardy, a traveling showman who also occasionally heals people; his bitter, angry, but still loving wife, Grace; and his once-plucky, now-tired manager, Teddy, who has given up his career to promote Frank. Each monologue sheds more light on events that lead to tragedy, although the characters’ memories conflict with each other. Faith Healer is an Irish meditation on the role and responsibility of the artist in society, as well as an exploration of the meanings of healing and salvation
