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

Fun event! This is one of my favorite plays- saw it at Theater In The Round a few years back, too. Hilarious script with very quirky characters- though it has its somber & moving moments, too. The actors and crew did a great job bringing this story to life!
