Part of WOW – Women of the World

Watch Joan of Arc’s story of courage, conviction and hope performed by drag king champion Lucy Jane Parkinson. In this hit show, history’s greatest gender warrior takes to the stage, dragging up as the men she defies.

Packed with guts, heart (and some well placed couscous), Joan is a fusion of lyrical new writing and cabaret.

What happens when a disguise becomes something a lot more real and you have to fight for who you really are?

This is a timely and refreshing look at one of history’s most famous heroines, exploring the salient themes of identity, courage and belief.

Joan is a drag king theatre show that aims to introduce new audiences to this ever-growing art form, placing it within theatre spaces and community settings. Drag queens have long been at the forefront experimental performance and popular entertainment, but kings are quickly catching up.

The show is produced by Milk Presents and supported by BBC Performing Arts Fund, Arts Council England and Derby Theatre.
