Francis, The Holy Jester provides an intimate, insightful and often hilarious portrait of Saint Francis of Assisi, and gives a delightful slice of life in medieval Italy, full of relevance for our lives today. A tale that brings together courtiers, Popes, Cardinals, generals and peasants, saints and sinners, and Jesus himself in a great pageant of characters brought to life through a remarkable performance that sparks the imagination and delights the soul.

Mario Pirovano performed the play at the 2009 Edinburgh Festival to great critical acclaim, and he has now returned from his home in Perugia for a tour of the UK. The St James's Church performance will be the only London night of the tour, and the stunning interior and acoustics of this very special building will assure an unforgettable night of theatre.

"Veteran Dario Fo associate Mario Pirovano delivers Fo's characteristically folksy monologues about Francis of Assisi with a verve and informality that closely resemble Fo's own performance style." The Stage

"Pirovano's performance, and his ability are astounding. I recommend it wholeheartedly and completely." Edinburgh Review

Dario Fo was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1997. His works have been published and performed in over 50 countries and in more than 30 languages, and include Mistero Buffo and Accidental Death of an Anarchist.

"Imagine a cross between Bertolt Brecht and Lenny Bruce, and you may begin to have an idea of the scope of Fo's anarchic wit." New York Times

A Beautiful Happenings Press Release

Francis, The Holy Jester

A play by Nobel Prize-winning Dario Fo,

performed by Mario Pirovano

Mario Pirovano brings to London for one night only his

Edinburgh Festival acclaimed one-man performance of

Nobel Prize-winner Dario Fo's work on the life of Francis

of Assisi

Wednesday 8th September 2010

Tickets: £15

Early Bird Tickets (available until 31st July 2010): £10

Francis, the Holy Jester is a one-man show, a play which relies solely on the considerable skill of highly experienced

performer Mario Pirovano and the imagination of the audience. A whole range of characters from 13th Century Italy are

brought to life before the audience: Popes and Cardinals, Dukes and Duchesses, soldiers on the battlefield, traders in the

marketplace and St Francis himself.

The play traces some events from the life of one of the most colourful and renowned of holy men, St Francis of Assisi. It

is a play that truly addresses some fundamental questions about how we express our faith and commitment to Christian

principles. It also has the timelessness of a great story masterfully told and is full of relevance for our lives today for

Christians and non-Christians alike.

Dario Fo and Mario Pirovano offer four episodes from St Francis life and, like Francis himself, the play is wonderfully

humorous, uplifting, thought-provoking and unpredictable.

This is an entirely unique and living piece of theatre that interrogates and celebrates humanity, has the power to reach

all of us, theatre-lover or no, educated or non-educated, Christian or non-Christian and will be enjoyed by anyone who

loves a good story carefully crafted and expertly told with insight, vivacity and humour.

Mario Pirovano performed the play at the 2009 Edinburgh Festival to great critical acclaim, and he has now returned

from his home in Perugia for a tour of the UK. The St James's Church performance will be the only London night of the

tour, and the stunning interior and acoustics of this very special building will assure an unforgettable night of theatre.
