Publisher's Summary

Saint Joan

by George Bernard Shaw

Presented by The Online Stage

According to George Bernard Shaw, Joan of Arc was in fact one of the first Protestant martyrs. She was one of the first apostles of nationalism, and the first French practitioner of Napoleonic realism in warfare. She also refused to accept the specific woman's lot, and dressed and fought and lived as men did.

Shaw's exploration of the story of this ingenuous and eponymous heroine is set in six scenes and an epilogue, which takes place on 1456, when the church cleared Joan of the charge of heresy and condemned her accusers of corruption.

The ghost of Joan appears and, later, an emissary from the year 1920, to announce Joan's canonization.

This production also includes a very condensed version of Shaw's lengthy preface.
