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

Anything Frank Theatre does is going to be AT LEAST very good. This show is excellent, disturbing and draining. It is not a "feel good" show. But, if you want to be challenged and engrossed, this just may be the show for you. Parking is a little bit of a pain on the West Bank. There is a parking ramp that I think is a little pricey. If you want to walk, you can park across 35 at a meter.
This play contains strong language and is recommended for children ages 16 and older.
Enda Walsh wrote the book for the musical Once.
Thomas Magill is played by John Catron, who was recently featured in the Guthrie Theatre’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night, and previously seen at Frank Theatre in Metamorphosis and By The Bog of Cats.
