Written by Jean Anouilh in 1952, ”The Lark” covers the major events in the life of Joan as she is being questioned and subsequently condemned to death. As Joan is burning on the stake, however, the judges realize that in a hurry to condemn her they didn’t allow her to re-live the coronation of the king, Charles VII of France. Thus Joan is released, and the fire is put out.
“You are here to watch just another rehearsal,” he said. “I wanted to be on stage too, but the guys feel confident enough so I’ll enjoy the performance from the auditorium.”
Directed by professor Delchev and Belyana Kareva, ”The Lark” is scheduled to be performed again today, Wednesday, Dec. 11, at 9 p.m. in ABF theater. The cast will remain almost the same, but the students will take on roles different from those they did on the premiere night.
