Town Hall Theatre Galway presents Brian Friel’s ‘Faith Healer’ at the Watergate Theatre on Monday September 12 next.
THE WAY in which memory shapes our identities and the way in which we in turn shape our memories, selecting this detail and altering that, have been recurrent themes in the work of Brian Friel and nowhere more so than in his great play Faith Healer, currently running at the Town Hall.
Arriving at the Town Hall theatre to meet Rod Goodall for this interview, I find him hunkered on the steps outside and feeding bits of sandwich to a hungry young gull flapping eagerly around his feet. It could easily be an image of Faith Healer’s Teddy, the cockney showbiz agent who Goodall portrays in the play, auditioning a new performer. Teddy, after all, informs the audience that his roster of talent has included a bagpipe-playing whippet and a woman who can speak to pigeons, so a sassy seagull would fit right in. And Goodall’s convivial ease with the bird mirrors the sociable warmth of Teddy’s character.
