MINTeatro Stages George Bernard Shaw’s ‘Saint Joan’ this November

MANILA, Philippines—In the month of November, MINTeatro, the distinguished theater organization of Meridian International College, proudly unveils its forthcoming presentation of “Saint Joan” by George Bernard Shaw. Under the insightful direction of Nelsito Gomez, known for his directorial prowess in productions such as “Uncle Jane” and “La Boheme,” this production showcases an exclusively student-led cast.

This compelling narrative delves into the legendary persona of Joan of Arc, delving into the complex interplay between her unwavering resolve and the purported divine voices guiding her actions.

Shaw’s portrayal unfolds as Joan transcends societal norms, driven by a fervent mission to champion her French compatriots. As she encounters both opportunistic allies and vehement adversaries, the play navigates the intricate dynamics of belief, determination, and the contentious divide between skepticism and unwavering faith.
