Poor Clare

Atwater Village Theatre
3269 Casitas Ave Atwater Village

The world premiere of Poor Clare, Chiara Atik's powerful and very funny modern spin on the medieval story of Saint Clare of Assisi, opens the Echo Theater Company's 25th anniversary season. Clare is just a regular noblewoman living in 13th century Italy, trying out hairstyles and waiting to get married... until a man named Francis starts ranting in the courtyard. What happens when your eyes are opened to the injustice of the world around you - and you can't look away?

Presented by Echo Theatre Company
