Agnes of God

May 14 – May 24, 2009

Written by John Pielmeier

Directed by Bryn Jameson

Agnes of God is a play which tells the story of a novice nun who gives birth and insists that the child was the result of a virgin conception. A psychiatrist and the mother superior of the convent clash during the resulting investigation.


There are other, bigger questions explored in the drama, currently getting a bang-up staging by the Classic Theatre. The play, directed with finesse by Bryn Jameson, delves into issues of faith. […] Agnes, the nun, is heard singing before she is seen. Badin gives her an almost other-worldly quality- she doesn’t seem at all connected to life on this plain. That makes the hypnosis scene in which she relives the birth that much more startling and gut wrenching.
