I, Joan tickets
A rallying cry for revolutionShakespeare’s Globe will echo with the sounds of passion and revolution this year as it welcomes a powerful world premiere about France’s unlikely hero, Joan of Arc.
Young, poor and revolutionary, Joan has long been celebrated for a pivotal role in the 1428 siege of Orléans and Hundred Years War, spurred on by visions from the archangel Michael and other holy figures. Joan was later convicted of heresy by the English and burnt at the stake, but remains a fascinating historical figure surrounded by mystery and legend.
Playwright Charlie Josephine (Bitch Boxer) and director Ilinca Radulian (Richard III) collaborate to bring their brand new I, Joan play to the open-air stage. Audiences can celebrate throughout the summer, in a rallying battle cry that bounces off the walls of the Globe Theatre. This new work rediscovers Joan, questions the gender binary, and keeps the light of their revolutionary fire burning bright.
The I, Joan London cast features Isobel Thom as Joan and Jolyon Coy as Charles. The company is rounded out by Esmonde Cole, Natasha Cottriall, Janet Etuk, Adam Gillen, Debbie Korley, Kevin McMonagle, Baker Mukasa, Jonah Russell, and Anna Savva.
