Francis of Assisi

a one man show by Paul Alexander
 
“I found myself wishing I had brought friends.”
– Vancouver News, British Columbia, Canada

Strikingly simple, true to the spirit of Saint Francis himself and inspiration for the film Finding Saint Francis, this one man show, performed by Paul Alexander and touring this year, needs no props, no scenery, special lighting, amplification or stage setting. The story starts by introducing us to the medieval world of Assisi, but before we know it we are caught up in the life of an extraordinary individual. It is powerful, deeply moving and is suitable for all age groups and any type of audience, religious or otherwise.
