Stage Company's latest to open Feb. 9.
The Stage Company will present its first production of 2018, "Agnes of God," Feb. 9 to 18 at the Varsity Center for the Arts in downtown Carbondale.
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. Kevin Purcell directs.
Tickets will be $15 each or $8 for students, with all tickets just $7 Thursday, Feb. 15. For more information, call 618-549-5466 or visit stagecompany.org.
