If you think of Joan of Arc, what images spring to mind?

Maybe fire, maybe an armour, something about the King of France, something about being a witch...not too sure? Does it really matter? Yes it does!

Although she's become a universal symbol of faith, feminism & bravery, isn't it strange that no one remembers why?

Her story has been rewritten by over 12,000 writers ; to celebrate the anniversary of this particular version, join in (re)discovering the spirit of Joan of Arc!

Surrounded by French, English and Holy Inquisition judges, Joan is moments away from being burned. In a few seconds, she will be nothing but a pile of ashes at the foot of the stake.

But hark! Are we back in Domremy, where Joan was born? Is that Chinon and Charles the Dauphin on his throne? As death draws nearer, Joan's life flashes before her eyes - and yours - allowing us to relive the key moments she wishes to witness one last time.

Bringing this gripping fast-paced medieval drama full of wit and humour back to the London stage, Defiant Reality Theatre are pursuing their open-minded & peaceful mission to have strong female roles take to the centre stage under the direction of women.
