I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. (Matthew 10:34)
Widely considered to be Shaw’s masterpiece, Saint Joan traces the historic rise and fall of Joan of Arc. Her “voices” motivate her to become a soldier, lead the French Army against the British Forces, crown Charles in Rheims Cathedral, and to ultimately try and unite France under a national spirit. Truth, politics and spirituality are all examined with Shavian wit and intellectual clarity.
