“THERE'S WISDOM AND WIT IN ABUNDANCE…SEE FOR YOURSELVES”
– PETER MARKS, THE WASHINGTON POST
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.
