About This Show

National Pastime Theater presents BURNING DESIRES, a reconstruction of the Joan of Arc legend. Taking place in 1950’s Seattle, Joan must battle not for a country but for her feminine soul. An ethereal group of saints uncluding Marlene Dietrich, Emily Bronte, Gertrude Stein, and Emily Dickinson guide her in her spiritual journey.
