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, determindly 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.

The first of the additional shows for the season was the adult drama “Agnes of God.” The show had a three-night run and brought back James Keeran as director after many years’ absence. The show received high praise for the production.
