SAINT JOAN

Kingscliff

Joan: daugh­ter, farm girl, vi­sion­ary, pa­triot, king­whis­perer, sol­dier, leader, vic­tor, icon, rad­i­cal, witch, heretic, saint, mar­tyr, woman. From the tor­ment of the Hun­dred Years War, the charis­matic Joan of Arc carved a vic­tory that de­fined France. Bernard Shaw’s clas­sic play de­picts a woman with all the in­stinct, zeal and trans­form­ing power of a rev­o­lu­tion­ary.

Sur­prises are in store as a team of ex­plor­ers hit Skull Is­land.
