Paprzycki. The cast includes Susan Dewey, as Mother Miriam Ruth, Dana Haberen as Agnes and Nancy Bennett as Dr. Livingstone.
AGNES OF GOD tells the story of a young novice nun who gives birth and insists the child who is found dead is the result of an immaculate conception. A court-appointed psychiatrist is sent to the convent to evaluate her sanity as the Mother Ruth tries to shield Agnes from the investigation. The question of who killed the infant and who fathered the baby force all three women to re-examine their faith. The play first opened on Broadway in 1982 and won a Tony Award for best featured actress in a play for Amanda Plummer, as Agnes.
Producing Artistic Director Joseph M. Paprzycki states, “AGNES OF GOD by John Pielmieier is a perfect fit for our tenth season, ‘A Season of Faith’ as we bring this moving play of faith and psychology to South Camden Theatre Company.
