AIYF Recommends 'Faith Healer'

It may be about almost eleven months until the Aberdeen International Youth Festival comes round again, but there is still plenty to see and do in the city. There are still arts performances, and today we can recommend one in particular.
Tonight sees the premiere performance of "Faith Healer"; the start of a 3 night run. Presented by Blue Tiger Theatre, it is a compelling and poignant play about the power of faith - of all kinds - and the unreliability of memory by one of Ireland's greatest playwrights; Brian Friel.
Critical acclaim: "The writing is beautiful, supple, rhythmical, charged with the slow, sure throb of despair and enchantment... Brian Friel is the most profound and poetic of contemporary Irish dramatists" - The Observer
You can see it at the Aberdeen Arts Centre, 7.30pm, Thursday 16th - Saturday 18th September. Tickets are reasonably priced, available from Aberdeen Box Office on 01224 641122, or
