‘Miracles are all right, Polly. The only difficulty about them is that they don’t happen nowadays.’
George Bernard Shaw’s ‘Saint Joan’ is an involving, thought-provoking journey to the very boundaries of faith and self-preservation. Joan of Arc is determined to fulfil the wishes of the voices in her head and lead France to victory against the English in the Hundred Years’ War. Her passion propels her to the elite circles of bishops and kings, but her naivety leads her to overestimate her allies and underestimate the determination of those whose way of life she threatens. It is a multi-faceted tale of dogmatism and trust that will lead you to critically assess the time we live in.
