"comic fizz, emotional ballast and cross-dressing that looks like sorcery"
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

Derby Theatre, in association with Milk Presents


Written and directed by Lucy J Skilbeck

Put your drinks down and your hands together, all the way from Domremy in France (via Sheffield and 600 years) its JOAN!

Packed with guts, heart and some well placed couscous, JOAN fuses lyrical new writing with drag king cabaret for the very first time. An earthy story of courage, conviction, hope, survival and love, this is Joan of Arc quite possibly the worlds first drag king.

Performed by Drag Idol Champion Lucy Jane Parkinson, aka LoUis CYfer, this is a fearless new show about what it means to stand out, stand up and stand alone.

We are Milk Presents. We are Ruby Glaskin, Adam Robertson and Lucy J Skilbeck. We make theatre. The theatre we make is a protest. It's also a celebration. There's this sticky, messed-up, extraordinary, confusing thing we call gender. Our work is often about that.

Feel free to say hi on on Twitter (@MilkPresents) If you have any questions about our work, Ruby - our producer - will have all the answers you need. You can get in touch at ruby@milkpresents.com or give her a call on +44 (0) 7906 632519.

Our new website will be up and running shortly, so don't be a stranger and come back soon!!
