                                                                        – THE NEW YORK TIMES

The martyred heroine of France fought and defeated the besieging English at Orleans, 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.

Seating for Saint Joan includes additional seating on stage. Please see the seating chart for locations.

Saint Joan is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
