Old Vic: In Camera – Faith Healer

FAITH HEALER was performed and streamed live from The Old Vic stage to 71 countries across the globe from Wed 16–Sat 19 Sep 2020.

‘Just a con, isn’t it? Just an illusion, isn’t it?’

The Fantastic Francis Hardy (Michael Sheen) travels the most remote corners of Wales, Scotland and Ireland attempting to heal those who wish to be healed. His wife Grace (Indira Varma) and manager Teddy (David Threlfall) complete this nomadic triptych, each with their own telling of the loss, love and struggle of life on the road with a seemingly predestined Faith Healer.

Brian Friel’s masterful and haunting Faith Healer is a kaleidoscopic, ever shifting exploration of the power of belief, as the contradicting recollections of these three characters seek to reconcile with the past.

Faith Healer was the third in the Old Vic: In Camera live streamed performances, and was streamed live directly from the iconic Old Vic stage with the empty auditorium as a backdrop for five performances only.
