About the Show/Event
Information for Joan of Leeds at The New Diorama Theatre, Inner London (Play). "She perverted her path of life arrogantly to the way of carnal lust ... to the notorious peril to her soul." In a 14th Century Yorkshire convent Sister Joan is blessed with unholy visions. A seductive serpent and sinful saints exalt the earthly pleasures of forbidden sex. Her visions cause a scandal in the order but Joan's determined to spread her new carnal creed... even if it means getting a little creative. An obscene medieval mystery play with live music, based on the miraculous true story of a nun on the run. A new Christmas show by multi award-winning devised theatre makers Breach. World Premiere.
Performers Rachel Barnes, Bryony Davies, Olivia Hirst, Laurie Jamieson, Alex Roberts.
