Brian Friel's Faith Healer will be produced at Theatre Gael in Atlanta, Georgia. It will run Jan. 18-Feb. 10, 2002.
Faith Healer is a memory play that reveals the stories of three people on a traveling show: the Faith Healer, his wife and his manager. The group had traveled together through Wales, Scotland and Ireland until the title character's downfall. In separate monologues, each character tells a similar tale, but the story differs in each version. Faith Healer ultimately examines the truths of love and faith.
Faith Healer will be directed at Theatre Gael by Sally Robertson. Bryan Davis, John Stephens and Monica Williamson star. For more information contact Ann Ritter at (404) 876-1138.
