2023/24 Season – 30th Anniversary
By Brian Friel
Directed by Peter DeLaurier
February 1 – March 3, 2024
From the rich imagination of the great Irish playwright Brian Friel, Faith Healer is a deep dive into the psyche of an inspired performer – but is he really a shaman, an artist, or a con man? This story of a village set on edge by his machinations is at times comical and at times startling. Friel's masterpiece shines a light on the dark places of the human soul, but its mysteries endure.
