What's On at The Lantern Theatre



Lantern Theatre present
Damien
by Aldyth Morris

The story of Father Damien de Veuster, the leper priest of Molokai and patron saint of outcasts.

In this passionate, one man show, actor Daniel Finlay channels the powerful stories of the challenges that Damien experienced while serving the community of exiled lepers on a remote Hawaiian island in the 1870's and 80's, until his own life was taken by the affliction on April 15, 1889.

Damien is one of the Fringe's hidden treasures: a 40-year-old script, a masterful solo performance, and a story that's both shocking and inspirational. It tells the real-life tale of Father Damien de Veuster, a Catholic priest - and now a saint - who lived in a community of leprosy sufferers on a remote island in Hawaii. Cruelly exiled by their government, the lepers of Molokai endured a lawless and impoverished existence, cut off even from the comforts of religious faith. Cut off, that is, until a young Flemish priest named Damien came along.

Daniel Finlay's tour-de-force performance spans the full range of human emotion.
