JOAN

What happens when a disguise soon becomes something a lot more real and you have to fight for who you really are? An earthy story of courage, conviction and hope, JOAN is a refreshing look at Joan of Arc – history’s greatest underdog.

A figure of both history and legend, the tale of Joan of Arc has spoken to a huge breadth of people for centuries. This is a timely and refreshing look at one of history’s most famous heroines – exploring the salient themes of identity, courage and belief. JOAN is a drag King theatre show that aims to introduce new audiences to this ever-growing art form, placing it within theatre spaces and community settings.  Drag Queens have long been at the forefront experimental performance and popular entertainment, but Kings (female to male performers) are quickly catching up. This show resonates with an ever-growing dialogue about gender and sexuality and the need to represent a wider demographic in our society.
