The faith healer is Frank Hardy, a man blessed but also cursed by the gift of healing with touch and words. The problem is that his gift isn’t a permanent thing: it’s an on-again/off-again maybe/maybe-not business, which leaves him most of the time left with faking it, knowing he’s doomed to failure. Blindness, the inability to walk, a crooked finger –at the right time, he heals all manner of ailments and disfigurements, but most of the time he knows in his soul what he really is, which is un-gifted, a charlatan, a failure at the one thing that could distinguish him. Souza is a fluent and charismatic actor, who is able to reel out thirty-minutes monologues in continuous Irish brogue without ever sounding like he’s acting.
