This NTL production of the Shaw play was very interesting in its mix of modern and classic costumes and staging. Gemma Atterton, who was brilliant as Joan, started in traditional peasant garb and finished in futurustic, almost fetisistic leather. Somehow it worked.
The men of the cast were not as well known to us, although some of the faces were certainly familiar. And of course, it goes without saying that all of the rest of the cast were men.
It will be interesting to compare this production with the one coming this summer at Shaw.
