God’s Fool: Fringe Review









Fresh from sell-out shows in New York, the Arden Players arrive in Edinburgh to present this enlightening production following the somewhat turbulent life of Saint Francis of Assisi, a man constantly at war with himself for his passions of the flesh, who renounces all worldly goods in favour of a simple life of compassion and devotion. An expertly told tale that bears witness to an important passage of Christian history is expressed through a well-written script and impassioned acting. God’s Fool illustrates a man centuries before his time. Offering an understanding of the importance of inter-faith dialogue – an issue which is still relevant today, here expressed with tasteful consideration – God’s Fool is a play well worth seeing.
