ST. JOAN – Dublin Gay Theatre Festival
Three women are Joan. All trying to save history from itself. This is a highly physical, darkly funny and entrancing work of theatre.
An exhilarating delve into the heady themes of national identity, purity of race, women as victims and makers of history asks - 'would Joan the girl fighter, with the voices of God in her head, really boot out the foreigners today'? She challenges the view that only a dead saint is a useful saint and dreams of going back in time to stop history’s atrocities. Can she overturn its course? Can she save one life?
