However, things could be about to change.Arriving in Atlanta the flamboyant Archbishop Tardimus Toof, a prophet, preacher and part-time masseur promises to absolve Archibald's sins and heal his disease. But his family suspects there's more to this healer than faith, virtue and snakeskin shoes.This programme text was published to coincides with the world premiere at the Tricycle Theatre, London, which opened on 8 October 2015.
