The event creator says

Soup Can Theatre is excited to announce the return of HERETIC; a modern theatrical retelling of the story of Joan of Arc from rising indie star, Sarah Thorpe (Love is a Poverty You Can Sell, Marat/Sade, No Exit). After presenting a critically-acclaimed workshop production in April 2015, Thorpe has revised and developed the work and will once again take to the stage to bring one of history’s most compelling and emblematic characters to life in a new and expanded production.

Joan of Arc - the illiterate teenage peasant who heard what she believed to be the inspirational voice of God, led the French forces against the English in the Hundred Year’s War, and was ultimately tried and burned at the stake for heresy - is often portrayed as a religious saint or zealot. HERETIC illuminates this iconic character in a fresh new light by presenting her as a complex and headstrong yet fallible young woman who dared to declare herself an equal, challenged the patriarchal power structure of the time, and remained unwavering in her principles despite the ultimate consequences.

Bringing this new production to life is an impressive creative team including co-director Scott Dermody (Antigone), scenographer Alyksandra Ackerman (Dirty Butterfly, MacBeth), lighting designer Randy Lee (No Exit, HERETIC), sound designer Wesley A McKenzie (the marquise of O), stage manager Kathleen Marie Hemsworth, and dramaturge Justin Haigh (Love is a Poverty You Can Sell, No Exit)

Praise for HERETIC:
“A Stunning One-Woman Show that Picks your Brain” – The Theatre Reader
“A Fantastic Performance … Gritty, Ambitious, and Raw” – Broadway World
“Bold … Thorpe is Compelling … One of the Many Reasons I Love Indie Theatre” – The Slotkin Letter
