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
Reviews & Ratings
Theatre Coup d'Etat's production of Macbeth will require an ensemble effort, built with a high level of energy and performances that will be physically demanding.
At the heart of the show will be a process known as Animal Work. The purpose of the animal work is to enhance the instincts and impulses of the actor by cultivating the primal side that we all have but few of us acknowledge. This will work in conjunction with our company mission: to provoke an emotional and analytical response in our audiences by showing the depth of the human condition through both classical and contemporary works.
After all Macbeth is a story about a human being, not a portrait of a psychopath.
