Saint Joan

By George Bernard Shaw
Directed by William Woodman

February 08 - March 10 , 1989

1988-1989 Mainstage Season

The Story

Shaw’s classic play about a remarkable 15th Century woman who hears divine voices and appears to produce miracles with ease. An amazing story of innocence clashing with the reality and evil of politics and ego. Joan is burned at the stake for heresy because she would not give up her belief in the inner voices that guide her. A classic of the world stage that happily brings Shaw back to The Rep.
