Scaled fw joan 800x800
After numerous UK tours the critically acclaimed, multi-award winning JOAN makes its Australian debut. An earthy story of courage and conviction, this is Joan of Arc. Performed by drag king champion Lucy Jane Parkinson, history's greatest gender-warrior takes to the stage, dragging up as the men she defies.

Packed with guts and heart JOAN is the latest daring fusion of lyrical new writing and cabaret prowess from award winning UK theatre company Milk Presents.
A fearless solo play, with uproarious songs, about what it means to stand out, stand up and stand alone.
