St Francis play Sale Moore church 2014


undefinedA play about the life of St Francis of Assisi will be performed at the church named after him in Sale Moore. ‘The Life of St Francis' is a funny and inspiring drama featuring Italian actor and writer Mario Pirovano (pictured).

The monodrama will be performed on Saturday 11 October, starting at 7pm in the aptly chosen venue of St Francis, Budworth Rd, Sale Moor, M33 2RP.

This will be Pirovano’s first time performing in Sale Moor. He has a very energetic acting style, which has earned him international acclaim over the past 20 years.

The play both asks questions about and celebrates our humanity. Saint Francis is portrayed as a passionate social activist, relentlessly campaigning against hypocrisy, corrupt authority and social injustice.

Tickets are: £7 (adults); £3.50 (children). Light refreshments are provided. To book phone 0161 973 4145.

St Francis was a friar and preacher. He is widely regarded as a patron saint of animals.
