One Woman Show 'Me, Miss Krause, and Joan'

Fall 2008

Written and Performed by Martha Kemper

December 4
Kline Theatre


This piece reveals what goes on in an actor's homework, in search of answers to the question, "How would I play Joan of Arc?" The performance weaves scenes from the life of  Joan of Arc with scenes and people, particularly one special teacher, Alvina Krause,  from the performer's life experience. The tapestry of experiences reveals a theme: there are things so true and so eternal that no violence can kill, so real and so important they can never die. Discussion follows.
