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.
