about the artist
Milk Presents enable people to queer their world. For seven years we have been trailblazers in our field, making accessible queer performance for all. We’ve toured five critically acclaimed productions, our most recent show Bullish was specially commissioned to headline London’s first theatre festival celebrating trans, non-binary and gender queer work. In 2017 over 3,000 people attended a Milk Presents event, we worked with 354 collaborators and participants and had two play texts professionally published by Oberon Books.
about the company
Joan is a co-production with Derby Theatre and has done 120 UK tour dates since it’s debut and won three prestigious awards; Scotsman Fringe First Award, Stage Award and Spirit of the Fringe Award. An earthy story of courage, conviction and hope, this play is a refreshing look at Joan of Arc – history’s greatest underdog. Performed by drag king champion Lucy Jane Parkinson, Joan takes the stage as a gutsy gender warrior, dragging up as the men she defies in this smash hit show.
