JOAN (12A)

JOAN

PRESENTED BY THE WELLS MALTINGS TRUST

At the Gordon Barrett Memorial Hall


In association with Derby Theatre


Written by Lucy J Skilbeck


Running time 70 minutes no interval


An earthy story of courage, conviction and hope, this is Joan of Arc. Performed by drag king champion Lucy Jane Parkinson, history’s greatest gender-warrior takes to the stage, dragging up as the men she defies in this smash-hit show.


Packed with guts, heart (and some well placed couscous), JOAN is the latest daring fusion of lyrical new writing and cabaret prowess from the multi-award winning Milk Presents.


What happens when a disguise becomes something a lot more real and you have to fight for who you really are? A fearless solo play, with uproarious songs, about what it means to stand out, stand up and stand alone.


Winner of the Scotsman Fringe First Award, Stage Award and Spirit of the Fringe Award 2016


Supported by BBC Performing Arts Fund, Arts Council England and Derby Theatre


A figure of both history and legend, the tale of Joan of Arc has spoken to a huge breadth of people for centuries. This is a timely and refreshing look at one of history’s most famous heroines – exploring the salient themes of identity, courage and belief. JOAN is a drag King theatre show that aims to introduce new audiences to this ever-growing art form, placing it within theatre spaces and community settings.  Drag Queens have long been at the forefront experimental performance and popular entertainment, but Kings (female to male performers) are quickly catching up. This show resonates with an ever-growing dialogue about gender and sexuality and the need to represent a wider demographic in our society.
