Saint Somebody

Joan of Arc didn’t die at the stake – she was killed by categorisation.

We’re here to set Joan free from the books that men wrote. We might resurrect someone. We might hold a séance. We might write a little history of our own.

Saint Somebody is about women on trial, about myths and retellings, about writing and unwriting, about images and outfits, about saints and relics, about teenagers, about the fear of an unknowable woman.
