The work is the result of Karic's 15-month residency at the Goodman, during which time she created an adaptation of Friedrich Schiller's Jungfrau von Orleans (The Maid of Orléans), which loosely follows the story of Joan of Arc. In the play, Joan is driven by religious fundamentalism and nationalist zeal, and makes a dreadful pact with God to reject her feminine identity and take up the sword to restore France's king at all costs. The work will feature a cast of 15 American performers, including seven musicians and Gospel singers.For more information, visit www.linz09.at or www.goodmantheatre.org.
