Saint Joan

December 22, 2008

Written in 1924, just four years after Joan was finally canonized, this is the play that won Shaw the Pulitzer Prize. The play employs Shaw’s more witty uses of irony in his story-telling. He takes us on a breathtaking ride from Joan’s first battle to rid France of the English, to her infamous trial. In Shaw’s hands, Joan becomes a fully human young woman determined to live life battling not only the English, but also the constraints men have placed upon women in society.

Written by George Bernarrd Shaw in 1924.
