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

These people were real actors. Very believable. I totally disagree with the review before mine. People should come see this performance. It's about real life. We didn't all grow up as Wally and the Beaver. They did a beautiful job of handling a very sensitive situation in an extremely dysfunctional family. Not a bad seat in the place, but they need to find some way to get the word out so those seats can have more people in them. It was a very dramatic, touching story to tell.
