Description

In The Second Coming of Joan of Arc, Joan returns to share her story with contemporary women and unmask the brutal misogyny behind male institutions. Joan of Arc was a teenage runaway who led an army to victory. Defiant, irreverent, intelligent and faithful to her own visions, she was one of the most well-documented figures of the 15th century. The Second Coming of Joan of Arc will resonate with contemporary struggles, opening a discussion on gender equality issues, both historical and current.

This entry about the play correctly notes that Joan of Arc is "one of the most well-documented figures of the 15th century" but historians have noted that the play itself ignores the documentation and replaces it with fiction on almost every point. Here's an analysis of the play at the Medieval History Database which covers many of the problems in the play: http://www.medieval-history.org/index.php?MHDB-Article-Review-The-Second-Coming-of-Joan-of-Arc-by-Carolyn-Gage
