From A Woman's Point of View

The Lark by Jean Anouilh, which is adapted by Lillian Hellman and is about the trial of Joan of Arc, opened at the Gorilla Theatre and will run through April 4.

Nancy Cole, the director, and Magali Naas, who plays the role of Joan of Arc, discuss the play and Joan particularly.

Did you know that Joan was not condemned to the stake; she chose it? Joan's mother and brothers in 1450 managed to reverse the conviction. There are no statues of Joan of Arc in London; why might that be the case?
