GreenLight Women & Theatre West Writers’ Workshop – THE LEGEND Table Read

November 5, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

During the tumultuous 11th century young Joan’s entire family is murdered in front of her.  She escapes, disguised as her dead twin brother John,  to a monastery where she is raised to be a priest.  A truly brilliant human, Joan rises in the Church while hiding her gender, eventually becoming Pope.  At the peak of her powers, she finds love and her world is torn asunder, forcing her to pay an earthly price for being a woman.
