If the system's rigged against you, what can you believe in?
St Joan of the Stockyards is a searing critique of capitalism and a rallying battle cry for modern day activists and anarchists.
The Joan of Arc myth is reimagined by influential German playwright Bertolt Brecht and set against the backdrop of a crumbling city in the grip of a snowstorm.
Charity worker and doomed martyr Joan Dark battles wealthy business owner Pierpont Mauler; her innocent ideals tested by the cold, hard reality of economics.
This incendiary work is translated by the powerhouse team of award-winning playwright Mark Rogers (Winner: 2019 Patrick White Award, 2019 Griffin Award) and director Sanja Simić (Lysa & The Freeborn Dames) and makes its Australian premiere at La Boite.
St Joan of the Stockyards delivers a gripping tale of dodgy contractors, huge corporate buyouts, a city in riot, and a woman willing to die to change everything.
