“Breach Theatre are heading to the Barbican next year with the brilliant It’s True, It’s True, It’s True. If you haven’t yet seen that remarkable show you should definitely book – but if you are looking for something a little sooner then this story of a 14th century nun with unholy visions should fit the bill. Borrowing from medieval Mystery plays, but filtered through a psychedelic 1970s aesthetic, this may not be a religious experience but it should be a joyful theatrical one.”

Overview

"She perverted her path of life arrogantly to the way of carnal lust ... to the notorious peril to her soul."
In a 14th Century Yorkshire convent Sister Joan is blessed with unholy visions. A seductive serpent and sinful saints exalt the earthly pleasures of forbidden sex.

Her visions cause a scandal in the order but Joan’s determined to spread her new carnal creed... even if it means getting a little creative.

An obscene medieval mystery play with live music, based on the miraculous true story of a nun on the run. A new Christmas show by multi award-winning devised theatre makers Breach.
