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

Quotes & Highlights
- "... director Lisa Peterson's taut and insightful production finds the loose thread in Norris' neatly woven comedy and by tugging just a bit on that thread, unravels something deeper than an exchange of coded (and not so coded) insults. She does so with a cast that is uniformly crisp and responsive, decked out distinctly in two eras by David Zinn's costume scheme." --Graydon Royce, <em>Star Tribune</em>
- <em>"Clybourne Park </em>is the Guthrie at its best: drafting a team of the finest local actors and setting them loose on a sharp, challenging contemporary script. You'll leave the theater talking, thinking, and maybe even laughing." --Jay Gabler, <em>Twin Cities Daily Planet</em>
