Introduction
Faith Healer is written in 1979 and is one of Brian Friel’s most performed and most respected works. It is almost always in the repertoire on Broadway, in the West End and throughout the world. Brian Friel is considered to be one of the greatest living English-language playwrights and has written more than thirty plays in a sixty year career. His works such as Philadelphia, Here I Come and Dancing at Lughnasa are considered as important as any of the works by the great playwrights Anton Chekov, Henrik Ibsen and Samuel Beckett.

The play consists of four parts with a monologue making up each part and they are chronologically given by the faith healer, Frank Hardy, his wife Gracie, Frank’s cockney manager Teddy and finally Frank again.

The Actors Studio is fortunate to have Zahim Albakri, Ida Nerina and Na’a Murad who are among the country’s most respected actors to play the main characters. Director, Paul Loosley says, “I cannot believe how fortunate I am to work with these three on such a great piece of work. I first saw Faith Healer in London in 2001 and it has sat in the back of my mind all the time aching to get out. So to direct it, and with such a cast, is both a thrill and a little bit scary; but I wouldn’t have it any other way. With only four performances it is clearly an opportunity to see theatre at its very, very best.”

The Actors Studio has had a long held connection to Brian Friel; especially having presented his most recognized play; Philadelphia, Here I Come, several times. Artistic director of The Actors Studio, Joe Hasham OAM, who also directed these performances of Philadelphia, Here I Come is a huge lover of Friel’s work. “The opportunity to see another of Friel’s plays produced by our company gives me untold pleasure; I will be hanging on every gesture, every word;” he says.

The Actors Studio Executive Producer, Dato’ Faridah Merican, adds, “My deepest love is for wonderful acting, so the chance to see these three wonderful Malaysian actors will be an immense treat for me, not just as executive producer but simply a member of the audience.”

Faith Healer opens at The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre from Thursday 6th November 2014 to Sunday 9th November 2014.
