What happens when a disguise soon becomes something a lot more real and you have to fight for who you really are? An earthy story of courage, conviction and hope, Joan is a refreshing look at Joan of Arc – history’s greatest underdog.
The latest daring fusion of lyrical new writing and anarchic cabaret from the multi-award winning Milk Presents. Performed by drag king champion Lucy Jane Parkinson, Joan takes the stage as a gutsy gender warrior, dragging up as the men she defies.
A fearless solo show, with uproarious songs, exploring what it means to stand out, stand up and stand alone.
Winner of the Scotsman Fringe First Award, Stage Award and Spirit of the Fringe Award 2016.
Presented by Milk Presents.
Venue: Studio Theatre
