The Warrior Virgin

When Joan of Arc died at the stake in 1431, aged only nineteen, she became one of history's most famous women - remembered as a hero, a warrior, patriot and visionary.

This exciting play about Joan, The Warrior Virgin, breaks the mould which has already shown her in conflict with the elderly male authority figures of church and state. Here is a contemporary, teenage Joan, a child of war, seen instead with her family and the young soldiers who followed her to victory and failure.

The play presents, for the first time, the Joan story re-interpreted especially for younger actors.

The text includes a score, study and production resources.
