Following her trial, it as rumored that Joan of Arc was not actually executed and, in 1436, her brothers announced that she was alive. Three years later they came to Orleans with a woman they insisted was Joan. In this monologue, that young woman speaks about her confused memories of her life and martyrdom, which now seems like a dream in which there is much whispering and everything is burning. She speaks of her voices, sorrows and visions, and pulls us into her possibly imaginary world. Perhaps she is a mad girl found in a brothel; perhaps not. An extraordinary acting challenge and showcase for an intelligent and talented young actress.
