Poor Clare
by Chiara Atik 

directed by Peter Hackett
Tickets available at the HOP Box Office

Clare is just a regular noblewoman living in medieval Italy, trying out hairstyles and waiting to get married. Until an unkempt man named Francis starts ranting in the courtyard... A breathlessly funny & powerful spin on the Middle Ages that tells a very modern story of what happens when your eyes are opened to the injustice of the world around you - and you can no longer look away.
