Heretic is Back!

12 Oct

Heretic SquareSoup Can Theatre is excited to announce the return of HERETIC; a modern theatrical retelling of the story of Joan of Arc from Soup Can’s own Sarah Thorpe (Love is a Poverty You Can Sell, Marat/Sade, No Exit). After our critically-acclaimed workshop production in April 2015, HERETIC has been further revised and developed, and Thorpe will once again take to the stage to bring one of history’s most compelling and emblematic characters to life in a new and expanded production that will run from November 11th to 22nd at the historic Theatre Passe Muraille backspace.

HERETIC illuminates this iconic character in a fresh new light by presenting Joan not as a religious saint or zealot, but as a complex and headstrong yet fallible young woman who dared to declare herself an equal, challenged the patriarchal power structure of the time, and remained unwavering in her principles despite the ultimate consequences.
