From the Donmar Warehouse, National Theatre Live presents an encore performance this Sunday at 11:30 a.m. at Palace Cineplex of St Joan, an adaptation of Bernard Shaw's classic play depicting a woman with all the instinct, zeal and transforming power of a revolutionary. From the torment of the Hundred Years' War, the charismatic Joan of Arc carved a victory that defined France.

Josie Rourke (Les Liaisons Dangereuses, The Vote, Coriolanus) directs Gemma as Joan of Arc in this electrifying masterpiece.
