New in 2018
A revival of George Bernard Shaw's classic play that recounts the story of Joan of Arc, a peasant girl who claimed to hear the voices of saints directing her to help the Dauphin of France drive the English out of the country.

From the producers: Set in 15th century France, "Saint Joan" follows a country girl whose mysterious visions propel her into elite circles. When the nation’s rulers become threatened by her popularity and influence, they unite to bring her down and she finds herself on trial for her life. This timeless and powerful play dramatizes the limits of an individual in a society dominated by overwhelming political and religious forces.

George Bernard Shaw's "Saint Joan," about 15th century French military figure Joan of Arc. premiered in in 1923, three years after her canonization by the Roman Catholic Church. The play dramatizes what is known of her life based on the substantial records of her trial. The play was last seen on Broadway in 1993 starring Maryann Plunkett as Joan. The production was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Revival. 'Saint Joan" was adapted twice for the big screen - first in 1927 and again in 1957 starring Jean Seberg and John Gielgud.



Heading the cast as the famous heroine is Condola Rashad, fresh off her Tony-nominated performance in "A Doll’s House, Part 2." Tony winner Daniel Sullivan ("Proof," "The Heidi Chronicles") directs.
