A Unique, Tony Award-Winning Play Offers Up Drama with an Unexpected Twist

Academy Theatre leading ladies Fracena Byrd, Brenda Porter and Lynna Schmidt team up to bring a powerful story to the stage of the Hapeville Performing Arts Center. Byrd directs Porter and Schmidt, who are joined by Sarah Craig in the Tony Award-winning psychological drama Agnes of God.

Agnes (Sarah Craig), a young nun, has given birth in a convent. Agnes claims no memory or knowledge of the event. Her mother superior, Mother Miriam Ruth (Lynna Schmidt), insists that Agnes does not understand what happened.

Dr. Martha Livingstone (Brenda Porter), the court-appointed psychiatrist, wants to discover the truth of the matter hidden behind Agnes’s veiled and cloistered mind. A psychological war ensues between Dr. Livingstone and Mother Miriam Ruth over Agnes’s mental and spiritual health, and the play becomes a collection of contrasts between science and religion, between the temporal and spiritual, and between facts and faith.

Don’t miss Agnes of God when it comes to Hapeville Performing Arts Center! The show will run through Sunday, October 21st. Tickets are available for purchase online.
