World premiere of a new musical written and directed by award winning writer and director Will Hammond, with musical arrangements by S&S Award Winner 2014 Tim Gilvin.

1431. Accused of murder, genocide and witchcraft, Jeanne d’Arc is captured and brought to trial under English law. Under the oppressive regime of occupied France, with no word from her King and the voices from God deserting her, Jeanne must now face a sentence greater than death.

 

Final year BA (Hons) Musical Theatre students (BA (Hons) Musical Theatre at Amersham & Wycombe College with Bucks New University) present a contemporary, explosive retelling of the final months of Joan of Arc’s life to coincide with the anniversary of her death and marking 95 years since her canonisation as a Saint.
