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.
A gender-fluid revolutionary for our times
Igniting the kind of passion theatremakers surely dream of
All elements are vibrantly rethought
A freshly nuanced version of history, bringing trans joy firmly into the spotlight
Funny, fierce non-binary Joan of Arc proves sceptics wrong
Raw, joyous, irreverent take on Joan of Arc
This could be something of a game-changer
This politically charged sensation is a much-needed whirl
It’s a party, and a bloody fun one at that
Lusty rallying cry for equality
Isobel Thom plays Joan with ecstatic pixie energy
Too little at stake for this 21st-century Joan of Arc
