Francis is Julian Mitchell's new look at the life St Francis of Assisi

"Francis ... is a grave and beautiful play. Its theme is the setting up by, that simple, poetical and perhaps most beloved of saints of his 13th-century order dedicated to a life of complete poverty and an example in following the life of Christ" ~ Harold Atkins, Daily Telegraph

" clear virtue of Mitchell's treatment is that it serves as a salutary correction to the traditional, if hazy, image of the gentle Francis communing with birds and beasts ... his struggles to found and preserve an order based on poverty and a literal reading of the Gospels in the face of the Church's attempt to institutionalise and dilute his beliefs ..." ~ Malcolm Hay, Time Out
