A scene from “Saint Joan,” by UNCG Theatre

This week UNC Greensboro School of Theatre presents a live production of George Bernard Shaw’s “Saint Joan,” available for on-demand streaming March 18-20. 

Tickets may be purchased for $5 each here: https://www.etix.com/ticket/v/15070/taylor-theatre

The show will only be available during the streaming dates.

The play depicts France’s 15th-century divinely-inspired heroine Joan of Arc, who was burned at the stake as a religious heretic and, afterwards, canonized as a saint.

The production is directed by Professor John Gulley, who says of the narrative, “It’s a profoundly moving story about a young woman challenging the establishment: the government, the church, the military… a powerful story of a young woman challenging the sexism and misogyny of her day.” 

A Frame/Works discussion on the play will take place on Monday, March 22, at 7 p.m. Participate here.
