Although we don't tend to dine out before or after plays, there are several places to eat right there by the theatre.

Seats were a bit uncomfortable, but the action on stage more than made up for it. Very well done. Stage props were quite dramatic. Good use of artistic license.

All the actresses gave stunning performances. I am a devout Catholic, and I appreciated the adherence to Catholic teaching and music.

Agnes had an astounding voice, I hope to see her career catapult from this performance.

Quotes & Highlights

_Agnes of God _was adapted into a film in 1985, starring Jane Fonda, Anne Bancroft and Meg Tilly. The stage play contains more dialogue than the film and is restricted to the three main characters. It is considered a demanding play for actors, due to the range of emotions displayed and the fact that the three actors carry the entire drama.


By John Peilmeier

Directed by Jacob Christopher Green

Summoned to a convent, Dr. Martha Livingstone, a court-appointed psychiatrist, is chared with assessing the sanity of a young novitiate accused of murdering her newborn. Miriam Ruth, the Mother Superior, determinedly keeps young Agnes from the doctor, arousing Livingstone’s suspicions further. Who killed the infant and who fathered the tiny victim? Livingstone’s questions force all three women to re-examine the meaning of faith and the power of love, leading to a dramatic, compelling climax. A hit on Broadway and later on film.
