Thu: 19:00 Joan: daugh­ter, farm girl, vi­sion­ary, pa­triot, king-whis­perer, sol­dier, leader, vic­tor, icon, rad­i­cal, witch, heretic, saint, mar­tyr, woman. Josie Rourke (Les Li­aisons Dan­gereuses, The Vote, Co­ri­olanus) di­rects Gemma Arter­ton (Gemma Bovery, Nell Gwynn, Made in Da­gen­ham) as Joan of Arc in this elec­tri­fy­ing pro­duc­tion. Bernard Shaw’s clas­sic play fol­lows the life and trial of a young coun­try girl who de­clares a bloody mis­sion to drive the English from France. As one of the first Protes­tants and na­tion­al­ists, she threat­ens the very fabric of the feu­dal so­ci­ety and the Catholic Church across Europe.
