A unique theatre experience comes to Lincoln Performing Arts Centre next week as the venue stages Joan.

Some 600 years in the making, via France and Sheffield, Joan asks what happens when a disguise soon becomes something a lot more real, and you have to fight for who you really are?

This is a fearless new show about what it means to stand out, stand up and stand alone

Packed with guts and a lot of heart, Joan fuses lyrical new writing with drag king cabaret for the very first time.

The result is an original and earthy story of courage, conviction, hope, survival and love.

This is Joan of Arc – quite possibly the world’s first drag king.

Performed by 2014 Drag Idol champion Louis Cyfer, the show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £12 (£10 concessions, £5 NUS and under-26) from the box office on 01522 837600 or go www.lpac.co.uk

The show is also the topic for the first of the new Insight Theatre Club at the venue on Wednesday, April 20.

The club works like a book club in that you see the chosen show and then meet up to chat about it over drinks and food a week later, in an informal atmosphere.

To help everyone warm into the conversation, each gathering will be led by lecturers from University of Lincoln.

The event starts at 6.30pm and is free.
