Work type: Play.


Imagine that you're one of the most powerful and ruthless men in the country - a colossus of politics and commerce, used to giving orders and getting your own way. One day a teenage girl full of teenage contradictions appears at your door - feisty yet deferential, streetwise yet nai?ve, tough yet vulnerable. She's on a mission from God, she says, and God demands that you help her carry out His plan to vanquish the forces of occupation and oppression. The girl's clearly insane - insanely self-assured as well - but there's something about her. Something you can't quite put your finger on. And your workers - uncompromising hardmen for the most part - believe in her too. But as more and more people sit up and take notice of her, she catches the eye of other powerful men who see her only as a rebel. And rebels must be dealt with swiftly and decisively. The astonishing life of Joan of Arc - leader, liberator, martyr, saint - is vividly told in Bernard Shaw's compelling drama. A new contemporary production which is a study of power, privilege, fear and religious zeal.Producer Lyric Theatre Belfast. Director Jimmy Ray. Design Grace Smart. Performer Lisa Dwyer Hogg (Joan).
