WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
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 19. Depicted as neither witch, saint, nor madwoman in George Bernard Shaw's compelling play, Joan of Arc is instead an illiterate farm girl whose focus on the individual rocks the church and state. Led by director Eric Tucker, four actors perform over 25 roles in Bedlam's riveting, stripped-down production.
