Strangeloop Theatre presents 'The Maid of Orleans'
THE MAID OF ORLEANS by Friedrich Schiller
Directed by Bradley J. Gunter
In the darkest hour of a medieval war, The Maid of Orleans appears on the battleground, driven by a miraculous vision and a furious sword. The embattled French cornered in a hundred-year conflict of succession with England welcome the mysterious maiden, but friends, enemies, and unearthly forces stand between her and the completion of her divinely-appointed mission.
Rarely produced in English, Strangeloop's adaptation is a rare look into Schiller's epic work in an intimate setting. Though belonging to a long tradition of tales featuring the historical Joan of Arc, Schiller's interpretation provides a unique look at her story, exploring the nature of belief, fate, loyalty, determination and doubt through the wondrous and tragic life of this young girl who became a legend.
Featuring: Letitia Guillaud, Nicholas Bailey, Nick Bonges, Géraldine Dulex, Jodi Kingsley, Mat Labotka, Kevin Lambert, Linus Lee, Keely Leonard, Martin Monahan, Holly Robison, Caro Servat, Paul Tinsley and Michael Wagman
With stage management by Sarah Borer, costume and prop design by D.J.
