Frank Hardy, Faith Healer, returns to his native Ireland in the hope of restoring his ailing powers. He is accompanied by his mistress Grace who has turned her back on her family to devote herself to him despite his cruelty and dependence on whiskey.Teddy is the seedy showbiz agent who is manager to Frank but in love with Grace. Told in four monologues, Faith Healer is a memory play about unconditional love and is among Friel’s most moving works.
