Agnes of God tells the story of a novice nun accused of murdering her newborn baby. A court-appointed psychiatrist, Dr. Martha Livingstone, is charged with the task of assessing the sanity of the young and beautiful Sister Agnes (who insists her baby was the result of an immaculate conception) -- as well as discovering who fathered the child and what events led to its death. But the convent's Mother Superior seems bent on protecting Sister Agnes from the doctor at all costs, arousing the suspicions surrounding her even further. In this explosive production from Bloomington Civic Theatre, all three of these women are forced to face harsh realities as they reexamine the meaning of faith and the power of love. A hit on Broadway, this Tony Award-winning psychological drama was later adapted into the 1985 film starring Jane Fonda, Anne Bancroft and Meg Tilly. Learn More

Somehow Mr. Cosgrove must do something to make this show more lively. I am a fairly big fan of Mark Twain. I recognize that the show was reflective of Twain when he was in his later years, however, it was very hard to stay awake in the first half because it moved very slowly with lots of repetition. Having seen other one man shows of Mark Twain I can say that Bill is on the right track but he needs more spirit.
