With Saint Joan, Shaw reached the height of his fame as a dramatist. Fascinated by the story of Joan of Arc (canonized in 1920), but unhappy with "the whitewash which disfigures her beyond recognition," he presents a realistic Joan: proud, intolerant, naïve, foolhardy, always brave-a rebel who challenged the conventions and values of her day.

Baker & Taylor
Dramatizes the trial, career, and execution of Joan of Arc.

This is a classic so there's really no point in me telling you whether I liked it or not. It's a play, so it should only take you an hour or two to read anyway.

Here's a list of the page numbers of all the good female monologues I found, though there might be more that I haven't found. There are only two female roles, only one of which has more than a couple lines. There are good male monologues and good scenes as well, I just haven't bothered to find them.

Joan: "ablebodied country girl of 17 or 18"
102-103, 108, 112, 137-138
