Milk Presents, in association with Derby Theatre


By Lucy J Skilbeck

An earthy story of courage, conviction and hope, this is Joan of Arc. Performed by drag king champion Lucy Jane Parkinson, history’s greatest gender-warrior takes to the stage, dragging up as the men she defies in this smash-hit show.

Packed with guts and heart JOAN is a captivating fusion of lyrical new writing and cabaret prowess from the multi-award winning Milk Presents.

What happens when a disguise becomes something a lot more real and you have to fight for who you really are? A fearless solo play, with uproarious songs, about what it means to stand out, stand up and stand alone.
