I Am Joan - Spring Tour 2017

8th May - 16th June 2017
Venues across the South West

I Am Joan is an autobiographical one woman show. A hopeful comedy about a woman in recovery from trauma finding empowerment by connecting with various inspiring Joans, such as Joan Collins, Joan Jett and Joan of Arc, all of whom embody elusive qualities of resilience and self-belief.   


Think Dynasty meets Joan of Arc with lashings of cherry bakewells and a heavy dose of glam rock.

Irreverent, laugh out loud, hold your breath and get the tissues out; this show will stay with you long after you watch it.
