The Second Coming of Joan of Arc, Part II

Today on WINGS, it’s the second installment of The Second Coming of Joan of Arc, written and performed by Carolyn Gage.

About the play:

In 1431, a 19-year-old French girl named Jeanne Rome was burned at the stake. Her story has frequently been re-told, but this version convincingly portrays her as a young butch lesbian who only when it’s too late understands the total ingratitude of the patriarchy.

Featured speakers/guests:

Carolyn Gage, playwright and actor.


Play written and acted by Carolyn Gage; recorded at Institute for the Musical Arts; interview and adaptation for WINGS by Frieda Werden.
