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

We loved it! Sue, who played the mother, was fantastic. It was great to be able to laugh when the subject matter was really heavy. Well done! And it was also a treating meeting the producers, Jim and Dennis. A super evening out in St. Paul! Thanks, Barry

This is a wonderful new play that beautifully combines a heart-wrenching story with a lot of humor and wit. It's contemporary, accessible, and with this terrific cast, it's just plain fun to watch. I was entertained from beginning to end.
Katherine has always found being a dutiful daughter difficult, and now her mother’s recent brain damage and increased drinking is making it impossible. Katherine’s apartment, job and relationship all fall apart with her mother’s surprise visit. Table Salt is thrilled to be producing the world premiere of this nationally recognized play!
Directed by Rebecca Rizzio, and featuring:
Sue: Maggie Scanlan
Katherine: Kara Davidson
Barb: Andrea Guilford
David: Nathan Tylutki
