Joan of Arc's Story Told in Concert Reading of Shaw's Saint Joan
COMP - $15*
Saint Joan is Shaw at his finest, a masterfully original telling of the Joan of Arc story that mixes comedy and history with the legendary playwright's uniquely pointed commentary on religion, society and politics. Considered by many to be Shaw's greatest play, Saint Joan played a major role in the playwright's 1925 Nobel Prize win. In this concert reading from ShawChicago Theater Company, we meet the Joan of Arc that Shaw believed in: not a saint, witch or madwoman, but a simple farm girl who becomes the catalyst for a united France. Propelled by saintly voices only she can hear, she leads the French forces to defeat the invading English army, only to be accused of heresy and witchcraft in the aftermath of victory.
