What happens when a disguise soon becomes something a lot more real and you have to fight for who you really are? Milk Presents bring you a fearless new show about what it means to stand out, stand up and stand alone. A figure of both history and legend, the tale of Joan of Arc has spoken to a huge breadth of people for centuries. This is a timely and refreshing look at one of history’s most famous heroines – exploring the salient themes of identity, courage and belief. JOAN is a drag King theatre show that aims to introduce new audiences to this ever-growing underground art form, placing it within theatre spaces and community settings. Drag Queens have long been at the forefront experimental performance and popular entertainment, but Kings (female to male performers) are quickly catching up. This show resonates with an ever-growing dialogue about gender and sexuality and the need to represent a wider demographic in our society. The play unravels the intricacies of Joan’s defiance and subsequent demise, with Lucy Jane Parkinson morphing into the men that put her there. A solo show about belonging, gender and finding our own identity.

'Comic fizz, emotional ballast and cross-dressing that looks like sorcery.' The Guardian 'Gender and sexuality are examined with thoughtfulness and a genuine sense of fun.' The Guardian 'Thoroughly entertaining, cleverly written and immaculately performed.' Broadway Baby
