DUBAI DRAMA GROUP PRESENTS: FAITH HEALER - The Courtyard Playhouse The Courtyard Playhouse


Thu 20 Jun 2019 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Written by Brian Friel

Dubai Drama Group is proud to present Brian Friel’s haunting work, Faith Healer, performed for the first time in Dubai. First produced in 1979, the play tells the story of Francis Hardy, an itinerant Faith Healer, as well as Grace, his wife, and his long-serving manager, Teddy. Through a series of monologues, the conflicting memories and shifting realities reveal the complexities of the three characters and how their lives and fates were entwined. Since its premiere, the play has been revived on numerous occasions to great critical acclaim, with actors including Helen Mirren, Ian McDiarmid and Ralph Fiennes.

“Brian Friel’s Faith Healer (…) rightly sits as one of the playwright’s finest works in a repertoire that is rich, long, and varied.” – David Barnett, Irish University Review
