My Life at the Theater: FAITH HEALER, BRIAN FRIEL
We saw a terrific production of this play at the Abreacht Theater in Detroit (this is the director, Charles Reynolds). It's done in a series of four monologues by a faith healer, his wife, his manager, and then him again. The performances were outstanding. I have to say the Irish know how to tell a good story and this one stands out. There are some mysteries here and you can make your own interpretation of events.
