Pity's Francesca Mills: a week in the life at the Royal Court
Mills stars in Rory Mullarkey's brand new play
Francesca Mills stars in the Royal Court's Pity, which opened this week at the Royal Court. Directed by Sam Pritchard, the eccentric piece is set in a town square that goes through a surreal transformation. Mills' credits include A Tale of Two Cities at Open Air Theatre, A Pacifist's Guide to the War on Cancer at the National and The Two Noble Kinsmen at the Globe. Here, she guides us through her week as Pity officially opens.
