Summary

Gifted playwright George Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan is based on the life and trials of Joan of Arc whose canonisation occurred shortly before he wrote this play.

Based on both substantial information of her life in Medieval France and records of her trial, Shaw characterizes this unique woman caught between the forces of the Church and law in this classic production with a strong cast supporting Siobhan McKenna's fine interpretation of this tragic heroine.

Good dramatized play

What made the experience of listening to Saint Joan (Dramatised) the most enjoyable?

A great way to get the full effect of a play. Reading it means you often miss some of the emotions.
