Out of print. Our last copies!

Brian Friel has done it again! Initially this appears to be a somewhat dull play, consisting of four monologues by three characters. It follows the waning fortunes of a Faith Healer as he travels around the UK and Ireland, and how his life affects his travelling companions. Below the surface is an incredibly deep and moving play which shows how everybody is fallible (even those touched by God) and the despair that is felt when everything falls apart.

Despite being no interaction on stage between the characters, the characters come across amazingly clearly in what is said. The fact that they are delivered in monologue, directly to the audience, only goes to give the play more power and help those watching to care more about what is going on. Prepare to feel completely drained emotionally afterwards.
