Charting the meteoric rise and fall of Joan of Arc and her mission to drive the English from France, Shaw's Saint Joan draws directly on the medieval records to cut through the sentiment that characterized previous literary treatments of her story. Acclaimed internationally, this instant modern classic propelled Shaw to the Nobel Prize for 1925. Our streamlined version allows audience members to realize the questions and quandaries experienced by Joan, her allies, and her enemies are the same ones we encounter today.
