The Paradeigma Collective Presents Shepherd’s Daughter: a Joan of Arc Reimagining
A young girl changed the course of a war and became a martyr. The Paradeigma Collective’s inaugural play, written by Whitney LaMora, and produced in association with The Chicago Mammals, confronts the theories that attempt to explain, diminish, and exalt her victories. Was Joan of Arc a prophetic hero? A delusional child? A pious martyr? The Paradeigma Collective explores the mysteries of her terrific journey and with this impassioned imagining of Joan’s epic tale will open your heart to her extraordinary experience.
The cast includes Whitney LaMora as Joan of Arc, Mary-Kate Arnold, Don, Biocchi, Dustin Currier, Matthew Erickson, Sarah Kopp, Megan Ligeti, A.J. Miller, Mallory Nees, and Hayley Rice.
The production team includes Emily Sharp (director), Megan Ligeti and Rissa Crozier (costume design), Mike Smith (lighting design), Lauren Yarbrough (stage manager) and Hayley Rice (floor manager and dramaturgy) with sound design and original music by Dustin Currier.
