St Joan Rides into Edinburgh Fringe

What happens when a Black Jewish Londoner dreams she is Joan of Arc? How can she overturn history? These are some of the tantalising questions behind Julia Pascal’s imaginative satire on nationalism.

Three women of different ages and ethnicities are Joan journeying back to medieval France, walking through nineteenth century Africa and shadowing the ghettoes of twentieth century Europe.

Can today’s Joan save a young Moroccan immigrant about to drown in the Seine?

St Joan is at  the Bedlam Theatre, Venue 49, 11b Bristo Place Edinburgh EH1 1EZ

2nd – 24th August 2014 at 16:30. Show length 60 minutes.

Nineveh

Nineveh, a new play by Julia Pascal and directed by Ailin Conant opens at Riverside Studios, April 16-May 11 2013
Presented by Theatre Témoin.
Once there was a boy. The war had taken his hands and arms. When he went home, his family didn’t recognise him. “You have no arms”, they said, “you are not our son”. They threw him into the river, where a giant fish swallowed him…

Three former soldiers are trapped in a whale. When a boy from another war zone arrives, they are forced to deal with their own pasts.

Inspired by true stories told by child soldiers and ex-combatants from across the world; collected by  Ailin Conant during a year of creative work in Kashmir, Israel, Lebanon, and Rwanda.
