Ralph Fiennes, Cherry Jones, and Ian McDiarmid star in a revival of Brian Friel’s Faith Healer, directed by Jonathan Kent. An import from the Gate Theater in Dublin, the play tells the story of Frank, a charming miracle peddler (Fiennes), who travels Scotland and Wales with his lover Grace (Jones) and Teddy, their doting manager (McDiarmid).
