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, 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.
Review – AGNES OF GOD
Folks, as you know, I rarely promote shows, except my own. However, I saw one yesterday that I feel compelled to tell you about. The Pumphouse Players production of “Agnes of God” was outstanding, to say the least. I am not a big fan of this play, and even less of a fan of plays with casts of less than four. But, in this one, I have to make an exception. All three of the portrayals were, in a word, over the top and most convincingly done. I hope you will take advantage of the remaining weekend to journey to Cartersville to see this show. They’ll be glad you did and you’ll be glad you did too. It deserves to play to sell out audiences during the last weekend. Two shows left. Friday and Saturday, the 28th and 29th.
