Written and Directed by Murray Mednick

“[Villon is] portrayed with gleeful lack of repentance by charismatic Kevin Weisman”
Los Angeles Times

“Murray Mednick’s sharp, cynical comedy … the dialogue crackles with quirky, non sequitur jokes and snarky repartee”
Stage and Cinema

Murder, mayhem and poetry. Award-winning, visionary playwright Murray Mednick brings his unique sensibility to the hair-raising, sometimes violent and often hilarious exploits of François Villon. Follow the 15th century poet and his gang of bandits, vagabond priests and swordsmen-courtiers through the treacherous forests of medieval France.

Inspired by the life of France’s infamous poet/criminal
