The Mesiah Within

Story added 2nd Oct 2019



The Messiah Within


City Lit welcomes a performance of 'The Messiah within' at the John Lyon's Theatre on Saturday 2 November 2019. An original play written and performed by Christian Franco.


The story of a man who has been contacted by God in his most miserable situation and his struggle to carry out his mission. This surreal performance mixes biblical texts and ancient stories interpreted in a modern society. The actor brings real life to these mystical texts demonstrating the essence of the system we are evidently trapped with a touch of humour.
