Three imagined encounters between Joan of Arc and American writer Dorothy Parker – one renowned as a warrior saint, the other for her savagely witty assessments of humanity. Now facing death, with only words to defend themselves, both believe they are living in the darkest of times. Joan has failed to drive the oppressors out of her country; Dorothy despairs about the world and her own legacy. But as these two wrangle about the nature of faith and the challenges of a creative life, they may actually discover reasons to hope.
