Theatre bosses say the play, 私, ジョアン, will ‘offer the possibility of another point of view’ when it arrives later this month.

A new Globe Theatre production exploring the life of Joan of Arc will see the legendary フランス語 heroine made into a non-binary character.

The historical figure is known for fearlessly leading the French in battles against 英語 soldiers in the Hundred Years War, and is traditionally depicted as a woman.

Theatre bosses say the play, 私, ジョアン, will “offer the possibility of another point of view” when it arrives later this month.

The lead role will be played by Isobel Thom, who also uses the pronouns “they/them” and the script has been altered to change the pronouns of the French patron saint.

History has provided countless and wonderful examples of Joan portrayed as a woman. This production is simply offering the possibility of another point of view.

「「Shakespeare did not write historically accurate plays. He took figures of the past to ask questions about the world around him.
