A new production of  Bernard Shaw's 'Saint Joan',  is reopening the Bloomsbury Theatre, a 500-seat venue at University College London that has been under refurbishment for three years. Maria Düster, Saint Joan Producer and Head of Publicity comments:  'Saint Joan' follows the rise and fall of Joan of Arc, the famous religious martyr who died at the hands of an oppressive government and society.

This modern interpretation is by turns hilarious and heartbreaking, and explores themes of misogyny, colonialism and faith. Joan's unshakeable devotion to her people and her God transcends time, place and religion.

This is a Joan for every age. We are thrilled that the first show in the new theatre will be one spearheaded by women. Women are leading the production team as producers, directors and in set, costume and sound design.
