written and directed by Simon Deggim| Translated by Jocasta Godlieb |

Is it a miracle, when a farm girl hears voices, finds a sword and liberates France? Is it a sequence of coincidences? Or is it simply the
result of careful calculations and manipulations? Joan fights her way through political and religious obstacles to fulfil her mission as a saint in the Hundred Years War, but not everyone sees history with the same eyes. When church and empire collide – is there space left for the dream of a farm girl?
After successfully premiering their production of Joan of Arc at The Easter Festival of Full-Length Plays on the Isle of Man, the University Players brought this play to the Audimax stage for the Hamburg audience.
