Written by Dumont and based on the writings of France’s Charles Péguy, “Joan of Arc” adapts the second and third parts of the stage play “The Mystery of the Charity of Joan of Arc.” These take Joan of Arc’s story through her victorious battles against the English, to court case and death, burnt at the stake.
In the 15th century, France and England both claimed the French throne as their own. Believing herself ordained by God, young Joan takes charge of the armies of the King of France. Eventually Joan is captured and the Church puts her on trial, charged with heresy, a crime punishable by death.
