New York City
It is 1429 and England has invaded France again, claiming the French throne for their King Henry VI. The English forces continue in triumph, and everything from infertile chickens to the misdirection of the wind indicates that God is on England’s side. That is until a farm maid, who performs miracles and claims to talk to angels, demands an audience with the French King and permission to command his soldiers. Filled with Shavian wit, this epic drama chronicles the life and trial of Joan of Arc, and demonstrates the power of one individual’s faith to conquer armies and change the course of history.
