"Katrin Hilbe’s direction is stunning. She sets up stage pictures that evolve seamlessly throughout the action. The three actresses are of multi-ethnic European, American, African, Jewish, Christian and Muslim descent. Juliet Dante, Rachel Halper, and Gehane Strehler give fierce, passionate performances."
– Joan Kane, FringeReview
"Director Katrin Hilbe keeps her cast moving beautifully across the stage. The props don’t simply aid the acting, they become part of the symbolism of the piece--the same prop is used for the cross and the sword, for example. Hilbe brilliant considers the folly of death in the name of king and country, often asking us what ‘country’ even is. Go and see this play – it is challenging, erudite and above all, captivating. The actors absolutely command the stage and the production is seamless. It’s a brilliant show."
– Duncan Grindall, Broadway Baby
“It was unique concept to show three versions of St Joan in one play and to plant them in various historical settings. Interlaced with factual information telling the St Joan story, there was lots of energetic action, intricate choreography, terrific lighting, poetic dialogue and the over-arching sense of power. The final scene where the actors construct a metal horse and ride it behind a man in need of rescuing was an exciting climax! Quite a theatrical experience!”

“Ambitious, powerful, and challenging – theatre at its best.”
