Interview: Brad Armacost, Lia Mortensen and Si Osborne

Seventeen years ago, actors Brad Armacost, Lia Mortensen and Si Osborne starred in a production of Brian Friel’sFaith Healer that took Chicago by storm, running four months in a tiny storefront space and then joining the line-up in Steppenwolf’s inaugural studio theatre series. They are remounting that production at The Den Theatre, again under the direction of J.R Sullivan, and join Anne Nicholson Weber to talk about Friel’s tricky play and the return to a pivotal experience in their development as artists.
