Buy tickets online to National Theatre’s presentation from London of the Donmar Warehouse's "Saint Joan" at 7 p.m. Friday, February 17 at the Newport Performing Arts Center (PAC), 777 W. Olive St. in Newport. The event is hosted by Catherine Rickbone.
Gemma Arterton is Joan of Arc, broadcast live from the Donmar Warehouse.
Bernard Shaw’s classic play follows the life and trial of a young country girl who declares a bloody mission to drive the English from France. As one of the first Protestants and nationalists, she threatens the very fabric of the feudal society and the Catholic Church across Europe.
Josie Rourke ("Coriolanus," "Les Liaisons Dangereuses") directs Gemma Arterton ("Gemma Bovery," "Nell Gwynn," "Made in Dagenham") as Joan of Arc in this electrifying production.
National Theatre Live is an initiative by the UK’s National Theatre to broadcast live performances onto cinema screens around the world. Since its first season, which began in June 2009, millions have now experienced the National’s work on movie screens worldwide.
OCCA appreciates the support of the Jeannette Hofer Fund at the Oregon Community Foundation and the City of Newport, as well as individual event sponsors, which makes it possible to show NT Live in HD productions at the PAC.
