THE MYSTERY OF THE CHARITY OF JOAN OF ARC

May 5-June 5, 2004
@ HERE

Written by Charles Péguy
Translated by Julian Green
Directed by David Herskovits

With Daphne Gaines, Jerusha Klemperer & Sophia Skiles

War is spreading everywhere, and those in power seem violent and heartless. Has God forsaken this world? Have we forsaken God? What is any individual to do?
With this American premiere production, Target Margin uncovers another gem. A very young Joan of Arc—before the famous battles, the trial and martyrdom—spins on a hill in the French countryside and searches her soul. Péguy’s 1912 classic unrolls in sheets of incantatory poetry, as Joan arrives at her defining realization.
