Irish playwright Brian Friel takes us across the sea to a mystical and haunting land as City Theatre Austin begins its 17th season with the play Faith Healer.

Throughout the remote and forgotten corners of the British Isles, Frank Hardy offers the promise of redemption to the sick, the suffering, and the most desperate and hopeless of souls. But his is an unreliable gift, a dangerous calling which brings him into conflict with his wife, Grace and his manager, Teddy.

Each tale they tell stirs old memories and new revelations in a spellbinding narrative, as their competing accounts of past events reveal the fragility of memory and the necessity of stories that we are never forgotten.
