Mother of the Maid
Date(s) - 13/09/2019 - 05/10/2019
For its 36th season, Pacific Theatre presents seven plays exploring the questions that power our internal worlds: how do we hold space and identity in a world suddenly transformed? What does it mean to protect a child? Where do we find dignity and freedom as we age? Can a cruel person truly change and be forgiven?
The season kicks off with Mother of the Maid, a Canadian premiere examining the Joan of Arc story through the eyes of her mother Isabelle (written by Jane Anderson). Isabelle Arc knows what her teenage daughter Joan needs: discipline, a loving husband, and to stop communing with God. As Joan hurtles toward her destiny as the Maid of Orleans, Isabelle must care for the extraordinary child who belongs not just to her, but to all of France.
Runs from September 13 to October 5, 2019.
