• National Theatre Live: “Saint Joan”
Wednesday, March 29, 7 p.m.
George Bernard Shaw’s modern classic follows the life and trials of a young country girl who declares a bloody mission to drive the English from France. One of the first Protestants and nationalists, Saint Joan threatens the very fabric of the European feudal society and the Catholic Church.
Josie Rourke (“Coriolanus,” “Les Liaisons Dangereuses”) directs Gemma Arterton as Joan of Arc in this electrifying production, broadcast live from the Donmar Warehouse.
The Wirtz Center’s Stage on Screen broadcasts are sponsored by a generous grant from The Alumnae of Northwestern University. National Theatre Live is supported by funding from Arts Council England and AVIVA.
Tickets are $20 for general public and $10 for students with valid I.D. They are available online at the Wirtz Center website, by phone at 847-491-4819 or in person at the Wirtz Center box office in the Barber Theater lobby, 30 Arts Circle Drive, Evanston.
