Poiema Productions is excited to partner with THEATrePUBLIC to bring the inspiring play, MAD FANTASTIC MAID OF GOD: JOAN OF ARC, to the Edmonton Fringe Festival. MAD FANTASTIC MAID OF GOD is a two woman show featuring Joan of Arc who was burned at the stake for being a heretic. Her fatal crime? "Wearing men's clothing." A teenaged girl, Joan single-handedly inspired the French people in the early 1400s to overthrow their foreign invaders. She fought in the front lines of battles. She spoke to angels and saints. She was surrounded by so many near-miraculous stories that, seven hundred years after she lived and died, she is still one of the greatest enigmas of all time. In this funny, extreme, and thoughtful version of the story, Melissa Blackwood plays Joan. Ellie Heath plays... well... everyone else. This show will make you laugh, make you think, and will leave you gobsmacked by the plain facts.
MAD FANTASTIC MAID OF GOD is written and directed by acclaimed playwright, Kenneth Brown (Spiral Dive Trilogy, Letters In Wartime, Life After Hockey), and stars Melissa Leanne Blackwood (Happily Ever After?, The Seminar, Sweet Lies) and Ellie Heath (Alice Through The Looking Glass, Cindy In Slipper, Strike!).
