The Lark by Jean Anouilh, contemporary translation by Gill Taylor

Joan of Arc. Saint, saviour or someone who heard voices?

Against the backdrop of one of the world’s longest wars, a 17 year old peasant girl led an army of men into battle and carved a victory that defined France. She claimed God told her to do it; the church says she’s a witch and should be burnt alive.

Jean Anouilh’s classic play tells the tale of how Joan convinced the church, the state – and her dad – to let her tackle an apparently impossible feat. And then plays witness at her trial: a nineteen year old uneducated woman held to account for her successes by the world’s most educated men.

EGTG is staging the Scottish premiere of a new script translation. Gill Taylor translated Anouilh’s French script for performance by her own theatre group in East London ten years ago – wishing to find words that bring to life the spirit, vitality and fire of Joan in a way that’s meaningful for modern day audiences.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Lark are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
