Additional Info: An epic retelling of the trial, condemnation and execution of Joan of Arc. Amidst the messy protracted skirmishes of the one of the world’s longest wars, a teenage peasant girl led an army of men into battle and carved a victory that defined France. She claims that God asked her to save the country. She is accused of witchcraft – the punishment for which is being burnt at the stake. Jean Anouilh’s classic play recreates Joan’s trial by the church and depicts a woman colliding with the male establishment with all the instinct, passion and panache of a revolutionary.
