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

Very intense. The venue was so intimate, it almost felt as if we were part of the jury needing to make the decision ourselves. It was a very short play, only 66 minutes, but very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend "Twelve Angry Men" to others.
The Civic Center is beautiful! Make sure to allow time to enjoy some of the artwork!
Quotes & Highlights
- In 2005, the Broadway revival won the Drama Desk Award for Best Revival of a Play and a Tony Award nomination in the same category.
Directed by Zach Curtis, American playwright Reginald Rose’s Twelve Angry Men is a powerful indictment, denouncement and exposé of the trial by jury system. It is a taut, engrossing drama in which eleven jurors believe the defendant in a capital murder trial is guilty, while one juror stands up courageously for what he believes is justice and tries to persuade the others to his way of thinking. The defendant is on trial as well as the jury and the American judicial system with its purported sense of infallibility, fairness and lack of bias.
Twelve Angry Men examines the jurors’ deep-seated personal prejudices, perceptual biases and weaknesses, indifference, anger, personalities, unreliable judgments, cultural differences, ignorance and fears, that threaten to taint their decision-making abilities, causing them to ignore the real issues in the case, and potentially lead them to a miscarriage of justice.
