I Joan – critically acclaimed play opens Assembly Rooms Durham Spring Season

25 January @ 7:30 pm


I, Joan premiered first at Shakespeare’s Globe in 2022 to critical acclaim, refusing to shy away from complex conversations around historical truth and transgender experience.  It’s a joyous reimagining of Joan of Arc; a story of hope and queer joy.  In the middle of all of this, a poor, young, and fierce individual finds God, themself, and the way to return peace to France.

The play, written by Charlie Josephine, follows the historical story of Joan of Arc as they find an instinctive God and amass an army of sinning and working-class heroes to defeat the enemies both without and within France.  You are invited to meet a cast of characters both true to the historical narrative and true to this retelling, a story of cheer and hope.
