Jump to: navigation, search

Folger Theatre performed their production of Saint Joan from May 12 to June 10, 2018.

Aundria Brown (Joan), Saint Joan, directed by Eric Tucker, Folger Theatre, 2017. Teresa Wood.

The martyred heroine of France fought and defeated the English at Orléans, was captured and taken prisoner in Burgundy, and put on trial and burned at the stake—all by the age of nineteen. Depicted as neither witch, saint, nor madwoman in Shaw’s compelling story, Joan of Arc is but an illiterate farm girl whose focus on the individual rocks the church and state. Led by director Eric Tucker, four actors perform over twenty-five roles in Bedlam’s riveting, stripped-down production, declared “Irresistible!” and “a force of nature” by The New York Times (Best of Theater, 2014) and a Top Ten Play by Time Magazine.
