Mother of the Maid

Mother of the Maid

Regional Premiere
By Jane Anderson

In this riveting new play, Jane Anderson reimagines Joan of Arc’s epic tale through the eyes of her mother. Isabelle Arc is a sensible, hard-working, God-fearing woman. Her headstrong daughter, on the other hand, communes with Saint Catherine, wears men’s clothing, and prepares to lead the French army into battle. Motherhood in the fifteenth century isn’t easy! Isabelle closely follows the baffling yet awe-inspiring journey of her curious, extraordinary daughter. Isabelle remains steadfast in her love and presence for daughter to the end, facing her own fears and doubts about her own faith along the way.

“…the quietly piercing, luminous new play…” —New York Stage Review “Full of Discovery. Powerful and Stunning” —New York Magazine “Witty and Piercing. Jane Anderson perfectly melds comedy and drama.” —Daily Beast
