WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Laced with humor and poignant songs, Saint Joan of the Stockyards transforms Jeanne d'Arc, peasant girl from 15th century France, into Joan Dark, member of a Salvation Army-like band in 20th-century Chicago. Like her predecessor, Dark is a doomed martyr and an innocent in a world of business deals, strike breakers and fat cats who fix prices, make secret deals and squeeze the workers for every penny. Joan's world spins out of control when she makes the Windy City's infamous stockyards her field of battle and clashes with Pierpoint Mauler, wheeling-dealing owner of a meat-packing plant, over the heart of business and the soul of labor.
