“The multi-talented Charlie Josephine—author of Bitch Boxer and a memorable Mercutio for the RSC—returns to the Globe, where she appeared in Metamorphoses in The Sam Wanamaker—with a new take on the story of the peasant girl who led an army, Joan of Arc. There has already been a terrific version of this story, Joan, questioning gender binary assumptions and expectations from Milk Presents, but there is always room for more stories that bill themselves as “alive, queer and full of hope.””

Tickets from £6

Overview

A cry for courage erupts in the Globe Theatre this Summer with the premiere of I, Joan.

‘There’s a whole sky inside of you! I wish we’d all remember that.’

The men are all fighting, again. An endless war. From nowhere comes an unexpected leader. Young, poor, female and about to spark a revolution. This is Joan.

Written by Charlie Josephine (Bitch Boxer) and directed by Ilinca Radulian (Co-Director, Richard III, Globe).

Join us in the wooden ‘O’ and feel the heat of the sun, the drench of the rain, and the pulse of Joan’s passion. With open hearts and raised voices, we invite you to dance and cheer with us as we rediscover Joan’s story.
