The Lark, a synthesis of the many facts and legends about Joan of Arc, is an attempt to recapture the lost wonder and joy of the famed martyr's tragic tale. Anouilh's re-telling of Joan's tale is a deliberate departure from the history books, but since when have facts had anything to do with truth? Anouilh wrote "The Lark" in 1953 where it met with success in his native France. A translation by Christopher Fry was brought to London stages in 1995, and famed playwright Lillian Hellman brought her own translation to New York that same year.
