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
- "a big and very enjoyable play full of chewy intellectual questions... Director John Heimbuch understands this play and its setting well... Vaughn digs into [his] meaty role with an actor's talons and claws. He creates a Kynaston of effete and supreme arrogance... He and Froiland bristle with realism as Othello and Desdemona." --<em>Star Tribune</em>
- "Walking Shadow Theatre Company is offering a smart local premiere of this tale, which, though set in the early 1600s, has plenty to say to contemporary audiences about gender roles, power and the passions that drive us... Wade A. Vaughn deftly trods a fine line between the actor who plays women with masterful affectation and the off-stage man whose life is significantly more nuanced." --<em>Pioneer Press</em>
