THEATER | 'Agnes of God' 

When a newborn infant is found dead in novitiate Roman Catholic nun Agnes's room, the local court appoints a psychiatrist, Dr. Martha Livingstone, to assess whether or not Agnes is capable to stand trial. Agnes insists she has no memory of the birth of the child, and claims it to be the result of a virgin conception. Livingstone and Agnes's Mother Superior butt heads during the investigation, turning it into a battle of reason and faith. Black Sheep Theatre's production of John Pielmeier's play, which is loosely based on real events, is directed by Sue Zuris.

Black Sheep Theatre (274 North Goodman Street, Studio D-313) will present "Agnes of God" on Friday, August 18, and Saturday, August 19, and again Thursday, August 24, through Saturday, August 26. All showtimes are at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $16 in advance and $20 at the door. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit or call 861-4816.
