A modern masterpiece by the acclaimed Irish author of Translations and Dancing at Lughnasa. Friel’s play weaves together the stories of an erratic, itinerant faith healer with those of his embittered but loving wife and his weary stage manager. In lyrical monologues, the characters deliver conflicting versions of “the fantastic Francis Hardy’s” performances, while slowly revealing a terrible event at the story’s center. A fascinating exploration of truth and superstition, and unconditional love that is not to be missed.

“A major work of art.” New York Times

“A dismantling of a traditional play, a juggling with ideas of truth and lies, a swimming between realism and dream.” Guardian
