The Faith Healer with English supertitles at Dramatyczny Theater

The Dramatyczny Theater in Warsaw will show, with English supertitles, a play “The Faith Healer” (Polish title: Cudotworca) by Brian Friel on July 29.

A story about Frank, the faith healer, his wife, Grace and his impresario, Teddy. For many years they have been travelling around remote Scottish and Welsh villages giving elevated performances. Using secret spells and supernatural powers Frank sometimes succeeds to cure the sick. At times he performs miracles.

The three characters’ confessions reveal the stories of their lives and the complicated mechanisms of their mutual dealings, relationships and feelings. They tell the truth – but each of them their own; with every new confession we can see the discrepancies in the narrated events and experiences. A left out incident is enough to completely change the picture.

“The Faith Healer” is a beautifully written story about love, friendship and commitment. And also about the desire for profit, the inexplicable powers of the human mind, about miracles. Can we hope for a miracle if we believe in something hard enough? And what if a miracle does not happen despite our deep faith? Faith healer encourages the spectators to take a detective’s viewpoint. Three characters tell the same story which reaches its climax in County Donegal, but their usage of emphasis or judgment of events or even their account of basic facts vary in each narration. We need to create our own version of the truth and understand why the characters shun from it – Charles Spencer wrote in “The Telegraph” about the play.
