FormatFull-length.
SynopsisThis play is a costume drama based on part of the life of Joan of Arc, exploring the conflict between religious faith, skepticism and religious bureaucracy, with a little politics thrown in. It presents quite nicely the stress-induced myopia or shortsightedness of the rulers of a country when fortunes have turned against them, in this case battles lost against the English invaders. The biography of Joan of Arc is generally well known, but the details of her life and exploits differ from one historian and chronicler to another. What? When? How? and at times, Who? are matters which the experts have argued about for years. This play, in which the author employs poetic licence in regard to certain characters and situations, is a fascinating insight into the dramatic events in Medieval France.
