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.
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 a daring fusion of lyrical new writing and cabaret
prowess from the multi-award winning Milk Presents.
