Agnes of God-A Hit at Heart Repertory Theatre

What we have gained in Logic we have lost in Faith

Under the direction of the Artistic Director Hjalmer Anderson, Heart Repertory Theatre just opened the Broadway hit, Agnes of God by John Pielmeir at the Sammamish Valley Grange.

This thought-provoking, suspenseful production proves to be as big a hit in Woodinville as it was on Broadway. It questions legal, psychiatric, religious and existential certainties, exposing moral ambiguities using an extremely zippy, dramatic dialogue, which was full of humor and wit.

Agnes of God at Heart Repertory Theatre

Dramatic Three-person play examines faith.

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, further arousing Livingstone’s suspicions. 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.
