Agnes of God

Agnes of God

May 7 – 24, 2020

Directed by Tom Holehan

Summoned to a convent, Dr. Martha Livingstone, a court-appointed psychiatrist, is charged with assessing the sanity of a novice, Agnes, accused of murdering her newborn. The Mother Superior determinedly keeps young Agnes from the doctor, further arousing Livingstone’s suspicions. 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 play on Broadway and later on film, John Pielmeier’s riveting suspense drama has been hailed by the New York Times as “An outstanding play!” and the New York Post as “Blindingly theatrical!”. After a four year wait, Square One is thrilled to finally have the production rights to present this thrilling Broadway classic.

“Blindingly theatrical!.”
