The brand new edition of the play about one of the greatest French poets of the 15th century, Francois Villon. The story leads us from Villon’s student years, when he used to be an assiduous scholar of Sorbonne and foster child of the senior Priest Guillaume de Villon, to the time when the poet gets involved with a bad company. New “friends” lead the unsuspecting Villon into the world of thefts, burglaries, and finally – murder. After the crime, Villon is banished from Paris and he wanders the precincts of the city while fighting for survival, retaining his fervent mind, sharp tongue, and ability to best his enemies and ill-wishers in his poems. However, the prodigal son returns to Paris to find his place in this world. After being banished for the last time, he disappears from Paris and vanishes from history.
