Agnes of God
March 12 - 22
When Dr. Martha Livingstone, a court-appointed psychiatrist, is summoned to a convent, she is presented with a rather difficult patient scenario. Agnes, a novice, accused of murdering her newborn pleads a virgin birth, but when Miriam Ruth, the Mother Superior, promptly keeps young Agnes from the doctor, suspicions arise. Who killed the child? Why? And, who is the father of this tiny victim? Dr. Livingstone presents questions that force all three women to re-examine the meaning of faith and the power of love. This all leads up to a dramatic, compelling climax. Adapted for film in 1985 starring Jane Fonda, Anne Bancroft and Meg Tilly, this piece is sure to make an emotional impact.?
