WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Considered by many to be Shaw's greatest play and one of the greatest plays ever written, Saint Joan earned him the Nobel Prize in 1925. In this stripped down, boldly theatrical, four person production we witness the Joan of Arc that Shaw intended-- not a saint, a witch, or a madwoman-- but a farm girl who is anything but simple; an illiterate intellectual, a true genius whose focus on the individual rocked the Church and State to their core. "Shaw's play has taxed the resources of major repertory companies. Here, its performed with zest, skill and astonishing dedication... Tucker's brilliantly adventurous production, as Brechtian as it is Shavian, is flavored with a prankishness that enlivens the play without undermining its seriousness." ­­ - Neal Weaver, LA Weekly
