MAIN STAGE

 

Agnes of God by John Pielmeier

Academy Theatre’s leading ladies Fracena Byrd, Brenda Porter, and Lynna Schmidt are teaming up to bring a powerful story to the stage! With Fracena Byrd in the director’s chair, Porter and Schmidt are taking to the stage, joined by Sarah Craig!

Agnes (Sarah Craig), a young nun, has given birth in a convent. Agnes claims no memory or knowledge of the event. Her mother superior, Mother Miriam Ruth (Lynna Schmidt), insists that Agnes does not understand what happened. Dr. Martha Livingstone (Brenda Porter), the court-appointed psychiatrist, wants to discover the truth of the matter hidden behind Agnes’s veiled and cloistered mind. A psychological war ensues between Dr. Livingstone and Mother Miriam Ruth over Agnes’s mental and spiritual health, and the play becomes a collection of contrasts between science and religion, between the temporal and spiritual, and between facts and faith.

This show is rated PG-13, and not suitable for young audiences due to some adult content.
