The company’s production of Brian Friel’s play will open at the New Vic Theatre, Newcastle-under-Lyme on the 5th September.
Rehearsal images have now been released for London Classic Theatre’s UK and Ireland tour of Faith Healer, opening in Newcastle-under-Lyme next week and touring until the 17th November.
Starring Paul Carroll (Frank), Gina Costigan (Grace), Jonathan Ashley (Teddy), this revival of the production is directed by Michael Cabot.
Frank Hardy has a gift. The gift of healing. A frayed banner hangs outside a desolate village hall. The sick, the suffering and the desperate arrive from out of the wind and the rain. They are promised ‘a performance’ but have come in search of restoration, perhaps a cure.
During the 1950s, Frank Hardy, his wife Grace and manager, Teddy, travel to remote corners of Scotland and Wales. Moving from village to village, they bring an unpredictable mix of theatricality and the spiritual.
Using four enthralling monologues to interweave the stories of these three intriguing characters, Brian Friel takes us on an extraordinary journey of shifting perspectives and uncertain memories.
The creative team behind the production also includes: designs by Bek Palmer and Lighting by Matthew Green.
