Joan - Birmingham Rep
Dates & Times
There are currently no events listed for this show.

An earthy story of courage, conviction and hope, this is Joan of Arc. Performed by drag king champion Lucy Jane Parkinson, history's greatest gender-warrior takes to the stage, dragging up as the men she defies in this smash-hit show.

Packed with guts, heart (and some well placed couscous), Joan is the latest daring fusion of lyrical new writing and cabaret prowess from the multi-award winning Milk Presents.

What happens when a disguise becomes something a lot more real and you have to fight for who you really are? A fearless solo play, with uproario us songs, about what it means to stand out, stand up and stand alone.

Every performance of Joan will be captioned using hand-held captioning equipment for deaf, and hard of hearing audiences called The Difference Engine. This will make the show more accessible for d/Deaf and hard of hearing audiences, as well as those who struggle with spoken English. 

Here's what you need to know:

  • The Difference Engine can be downloaded onto your smart phone or tablet before the show
  • Please try to arrive 30 minutes before the show so that we have time to give clear instructions to each individual audience member
  • The captioning is streamed directly to your phone so we recommend that your mobile device is fully charged prior to the performance
  • There will be battery packs available for audience members whose phone is low on battery
  • This is not a replacement for BSL and we appreciate it will not be suitable for all d/Deaf audiences
  • If you want to use The Difference Engine please inform Box Office when you arrive

Supported by Arts Council England and BBC Performing Arts Legacy Fund.
