The Faith Healer

By Geordie Crawley

14th September 2016

Chrissie Parrott Arts, Perth

Action arrives immediately in Geordie Crawley’s The Faith Healer as Sarah, a disbeliever, pulls a gun on Daniel in front of his congregation. She is determined to expose the truth of his fraud, forcing him to reveal that his skin is not marked by God as he claims. He slanders her as a stalker and details abuse he alleges he has suffered at her hands. Between them the truth is not easy to find. But when Sarah turns the gun on herself, Daniel heals her. 


The audience took this high stakes scene in hand, offering detailed and bold interpretations of place, time and character to direct  Isabelle McDonald and Sean Guastavino’s choices. They joined in the action of the final scene, playing the role of the congregation as active participants.
