Francis of Assisi

The Merry Beggars presents the story of one of the most famous saints in history - Saint Francis of Assisi. However, despite his popularity, so many know so little about the real life of Saint Francis.

We are seeking nonunion actors to join us as we tell the stories less often told about this heroic saint.

Francesco, a popular son of a wealthy merchant, was used to a lavish life of partying. Until one day, Francesco converts entirely from vanity and luxury to humility and poverty. This new life leads him down a road he never expected, especially as he founds a new religious order.
