Winner of the 2011 Audie® Award for Best Audio DramaWinner of the AudioFile Earphones AwardSoundCommentary.com's The Best of the Best 2010"Joan of Arc, a village girl from the Vosges, was born about 1412-burnt for heresy, witchcraft, and sorcery in 1431-rehabilitated after a fashion in 1456-designated Venerable in 1904-declared Blessed in 1908-and finally canonized in 1920. She is the most notable Warrior-Saint in the Christian calendar, and the queerest fish among the eccentric worthies of the Middle Ages."-George George Bernard ShawWith Saint Joan, Shaw reached the height of his fame as a dramatist. Fascinated by the story of Joan of Arc but unhappy with "the whitewash which disfigures her beyond recognition," he presents a realistic Joan at war, not just with British invaders but with realpolitik. This is a masterpiece of the theater of ideas, presented in the most eloquent, vital, human, and moving terms. Blackstone commissioned this production from the award-winning Hollywood Theater of the Ear.
