Description

Saint Joan is a play written by Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw, first performed in 1923. It tells the story of the fifteenth-century French heroine Joan of Arc, and premiered three years after her canonization by the Roman Catholic Church. After a lengthy preface by the author, the six scene play begins, taking the reader from Joan's experience of having visions of Saint Margaret, Saint Catherine, and the archangel Michael, through to her military actions, her trial where she is accused of heresy, and to her death at the stake. The play then concludes 25 years after her execution with Charles VII having a dream in which Joan appears to him. Since it was first written, Saint Joan has been adapted into two films, and a television series.

Part of the Encyclopaedia Britannica’s Great Books of the Western World set.
