Saint Joan


The martyred heroine of France fought and defeated the English at Orleans, was captured and taken prisoner in Burgundy, put on trial, and burned at the stake—all by the age of nineteen. Depicted as neither witch, nor saint, nor madwoman in Shaw’s classic play, Joan of Arc is but an illiterate farm girl whose focus on the individual rocks the church and state. Led by director Eric Tucker (Sense & Sensibility at the Folger), four actors perform over 25 roles in Bedlam’s riveting, stripped-down production, declared “Irresistible!” and “a force of nature” by The New York Times and a Top Ten Play by Time magazine.
