About La Pucelle
On the eve of war, Joan (Mieko Gavia) battles with her demons, rousing her troops to the battlefield, the salvation of France, and certain death. During this extended soliloquy, directed by Tony Torn, Joan appeals to God, demons, her troops, even the ghost of her father to help save France and herself. But Joan is plagued by delusions and personalities that may be either spirits and premonitions, or her own unstable mind. John Reed restructures classic Shakespeare texts in order to allow Joan to tell her own story.
