National Theatre – Saint Joan (Live) - 12
Gemma Arterton is Joan of Arc, broadcast live from the Donmar Warehouse.
Bernard Shaw’s classic play follows the life and trial of a young country girl who declares a bloody mission to drive the English from France. As one of the first Protestants and nationalists, she threatens the very fabric of the feudal society and the Catholic Church across Europe.
Josie Rourke (Coriolanus, Les Liaisons Dangereuses) directs Gemma Arterton (Gemma Bovery, Nell Gwynn, Made in Dagenham) as Joan of Arc in this electrifying production.
For live broadcasts, performances start promptly, so please arrive 20 minutes before. Latecomers will not be admitted.
