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.
