Gareth Davies begins rehearsals for STC's Saint Joan

Gareth Davies has begun rehearsals for Sydney Theatre Company's production of Saint Joan.

Described by The Telegraph UK as "Topical, fresh and deeply moving", Saint Joan is based on transcripts from Joan of Arc's trail and the extraordinary events of her life.

Under Imara Savage's direction, Shaw's classic play will be imbued with a minimalist, modern inflection.

Gareth will star alongside Sarah Snook, Socratis Otto, John Gaden, Brandon McClelland and William Zappa.

Saint Joan opens on June 11.

Last week HPM's Harrison Gilbertson attended the Berlin Film Festival premiere of Picnic at Hanging Rock. 

Interviewed in the Advertiser, Harrison discusses his role in the contemporary re-imagining of the Australian classic based on Joan Lindsay’s novel.

He reflects: “I didn’t find it spooky or scary so much as having a great sense of energy which we felt from day one when we were filming."

In the series, Harrison takes on the role of Michel Fitzhubert, the suitor of wealthy schoolgirl Irma Leopold.

Picnic at Hanging Rock premiers on Foxtex Showcase, May 6
