  • A risky, comic ‘Joan D’Arc’

    Charlotte Walkey, left, gave an impassioned monologue as Joan of Arc during a rehearsal for “D’Arc Comedy,” a play that opens at the Antioch Amphitheatre at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 31.

    Starving in a prison cell in France awaiting trial for heresy, the 15th century teenage heroine Joan of Arc had little to laugh about.
