Saint Joan by George Bernard Shaw

A common girl with uncommon conviction, Joan of Arc has stood as an icon of protest throughout the ages. George Bernard Shaw’s dynamic classic play, written in 1923, three years after Joan’s canonisation, was a key factor in his receiving the Nobel Prize in 1925. Based on records of her trial, it follows the true story of Joan’s life as she fights – first for her country, then for her life. Taking on the role is the fearlessly talented Sarah Snook (ABC’s The Secret River, The Beautiful Lie), making a welcome return to the stage. Don’t miss this stripped-back, modernist production.
