Bedlam’s Saint Joan
Directed by Eric Tucker, Bedlam’s SAINT JOAN has been declared “a production to be treasured” by the New York Times, and “unforgettable” by The Wall Street Journal. SAINT JOAN tells the story of Joan of Arc, a peasant girl who claims to have heard voices of angels instructing her to raise the siege of Orléans, to push the English out of France and place the dauphin Charles VII on the throne at Reims. Shaw paints Joan not as a saint, a witch, or a madwoman but as a farm girl who is an illiterate intellectual, a true genius whose focus on the individual rocked the Church and State to their core. Four actors play all of the 24 roles in this “taut, maraudingly high-spirited” production.
