Festival Theatre’s performance of Faith Healer opens this Sunday

Oak Park Festival Theatre’s production of Faith Healer opens this Sunday at 8 p.m. Brian Friel’s riveting play consists of four monologues, each unraveling the story of a professed faith healer, Frank. Much like the gospels, each character conveys their own version of reality, creating a cloud of mystery for the audience to decipher. Faith Healer is directed by Belinda Bremner, who directed Festival Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of Dancing at Lughnasa in 2008 and 2010’s Jeff Recommended Of Mice and Men.
