National Theatre Live presents Saint Joan
Gemma Arterton is Joan of Arc, broadcast live from the Donmar Warehouse.
Joan: daughter, farm girl, visionary, patriot, king-whisperer, soldier, leader, victor, icon, radical, witch, heretic, saint, martyr, woman.
From the torment of the Hundred Years’ War, the charismatic Joan of Arc carved a victory that defined France. Bernard Shaw’s classic play depicts a woman with all the instinct, zeal and transforming power of a revolutionary.
Josie Rourke (Coriolanus, Les Liaisons Dangereuses) directs Gemma Arterton (Gemma Bovery, Nell Gwynn, Made in Dagenham) as Joan of Arc in this electrifying masterpiece.
“Gemma Arterton turns in the best stage performance I’ve seen her give. She’s electrifying every moment she’s on stage” TIME OUT
