Friel's three-actor work, a collection of extended monologues, will officially open May 22 and run through July 4 on BTF's Unicorn Theatre.

Eric Hill directs the production that features Lane (A Touch of the Poet) as Frank, Adkins (Waiting for Godot) as Teddy and Naughton (The Rivals) as Grace.

According to press notes, "the play tells the story of Francis 'Frank' Hardy, an Irish faith healer who tours the British Isles, performing healings on the sick and invalid in whatever small spaces he can find. Along with his manager, Teddy, and his wife, Grace, Frank moves from small town to small town attempting to heal those with no hope for any other cure. Meanwhile, Frank has to come to grips with his own doubts, fears, and demons and attempt to understand his place in this world. When he starts to lose control, a chance encounter in a bar could bring him to salvation or damnation."

Faith Healer has set design by Chesapeake Westveer, costume design by Charles Schoonmaker, lighting design by Dan Kotlowitz and sound design by J. Hagenbuckle.

For tickets, priced $15-$44, call the BTF box office at (413) 298-5536 ext. 33 or visit www.berkshiretheatre.org.
