*********** Francis the Holy Jester ***********

Tuesday 14th October, 2014.

Thanks to a personal contact, we are delighted to host Mario Pirovano from Italy, who has offered to perform a fundraiser show as part of his Autumn UK tour. Having performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Mario is a renowned Italian performer, who retells stories written by Dario Fo (Nobel Prize in Literature). Performing 'Francis the Holy Jester', Mario promises to captivate his audience with humour, as well as evoking deep insights into life.

Come and join us for a unique opportunity to see theatre at its best in the fabulous historic setting of Lanercost Priory. Ticket price includes cheese and wine and an opportunity to support the ongoing work of Epiacum Heritage Ltd.

We are grateful to Mario for this fantastic opportunity to offer his show in the local area.
