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

I DID attend this event. The hardest part about the who process was filling out this review - took me 3 tries. Kept coming up as having not attended. Anyway - loved the show. Lots of fun. Men or women can relate to the story and setting. Superbly cast-particularly Jim Bitney as Albert Soady. Humorous script by actor/writer Jeff Daniels. Wonderful showboat venue on the beautiful river with the fall colors.
Escanaba in da Moonlight
a hilarious comedy by Jeff Daniels
Set on the eve of the opening day of deer season in 1989, Escanaba in da Moonlight tells the story of Reuben Soady, the only son in a family of Upper Peninsula hunters, never to bag a buck. Joined by his pop Albert, brother Remnar, and local oddball Jimmer Negamanee, Reuben is hoping to get his shot and shed the mantle of the buckless yooper. But before dawn approaches, the arrival of a strange DNR ranger and a series of strange occurrences threaten Reubens ultimate goal. Will he bag the buck? Or go down in family history as a failure?
