Dynasty meets Joan of Arc with lashings of cherry bakewells, a heavy dose of glam rock and tissues for all at the end in this one woman show by Judge’s Prize at Arts in Health South West 2015 winner Viv Gordon.
I Am Joan is a hopeful comedy about a woman in recovery from trauma finding empowerment by connecting with various inspiring Joans – from Joan Collins to Joan Jett and Joan of Arc, all of whom embody elusive qualities of resilience and self-belief. Irreverent, laugh out loud, hold your breath and weep silently; this show will stay with you long after you watch it.
