JOAN, A NEW MUSICAL
Created and Conceived by: Emily P. Faith, Erika Larsen & Amy Thornhill
Special Thanks to the following artists for their 2019 workshop collaborations: Sakiywaa Baah, Jad Saxton, Evan Knight, Taylor Nash, Sam Swenson, Satchel Victory, Carol Ann Lightfoot, & Josh Nash.
JOAN follows modern day Joan, and her namesake, Joan of Arc in a story of love, letters and loss. When Joan mistakenly summons the spirit of Joan of Arc, she is forced to burn away the past, or go up in flames herself.
"JOAN" is the creative brainchild of L&J founders Emily Faith, Erika Larsen and Amy Thornhill. In October of 2019, Lily & Joan hosted a workshop of the initial script and music at The Wild Detectives in Bishop Arts. Following that performance, edits and additions were made for a staged reading, which was produced in December of 2019. JOAN will continue to be a project in workshop for Lily & Joan as the story strengthens and shifts.
