Summoned to a convent, Dr. Martha Livingstone, a court-appointed psychiatrist, is charged with assessing the sanity of a novice accused of murdering her newborn. Miriam Ruth, 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 on Broadway and later on film!
Be prepared to read cold from the script. Please note that the script contains adult material. Agnes of God contains occasionally graphic dialogue

Mother Miriam Ruth — Actor able to play 40-60 yrs. old. Devout. Became a nun after having a family. Wants to keep peace and (possibly) save face for the religious order. Sincerely has Agnes’ best interests in mind as she tries to protect her from jail or the asylum. Strong, authoritarian presence.
Dr. Martha Livingstone — Psychiatrist, (Actor able to play 40-60 yrs. old) She’s seen it all. While she has a tough exterior, she struggles with personal demons. Still, she is quite compassionate. A chain smoker.
Agnes — (Appears young casting 18+.) Novice who denies giving birth. Innocent. Sings like an angel. She was abused by her mother and is forced to face this reality at the show’s climax.
