Today on WINGS, it’s the second installment of The Second Coming of Joan of Arc, written and performed by Carolyn Gage.
About the play:
In 1431, a 19-year-old French girl named Jeanne Rome was burned at the stake. Her story has frequently been re-told, but this version convincingly portrays her as a young butch lesbian who only when it’s too late understands the total ingratitude of the patriarchy.
Carolyn Gage, playwright and actor.
Play written and acted by Carolyn Gage; recorded at Institute for the Musical Arts; interview and adaptation for WINGS by Frieda Werden.
