By Jean Anouilh, adapted by Lillian Hellman

Experience the final day of Joan of Arc’s life. Joan’s trial, condemnation and execution are re-imagined in sequences of dream and memory, with design that contrasts the visual richness of renaissance and neo-classical masters of art with the ambiguous, ominous and often confusing world of modern artists such as Escher and Appia. The result is inspiring, provocative and heartbreaking.
