Mitchell School of Drama and Garidge Theatre presents Mr Francis and the Village of Secrets

A brand new play with music from award-winning playwright Alan Bissett Music and lyrics by Ashley Forbes

Set in NE Scotland, ‘Mr Francis and the Village of Secrets’, tells the true story of Francis Lathom, a Gothic novelist mysteriously banished from England in 1810, who reappeared in Aberdeenshire fifteen years later under the guise ‘James Francis’.

This hilarious, sometimes tragic, play speculates about Lathom’s past, while turning a satirical eye to the religious hypocrisies of Nineteenth-Century Scotland. Directed and choreographed by Rhona Mitchell Musical Director Ashley Forbes
