Throughout the remote and forgotten corners of the British Isles, Frank Hardy offers the promise of redemption to the sick and the suffering.
But his is an unreliable gift, a dangerous calling which brings him into conflict with his wife Grace and his manager Teddy. Their accounts of their lives together and their memories of the past collide as they attempt to understand the power which lies at the heart of Frank’s ministry.
Following her productions of Philadelphia, Here I Come! and Fathers and Sons, Lyndsey Turner returns to the Donmar to direct Brian Friel’s great play about the possibility of genius, and the certainty of failure.
