In this contemporary murder mystery, set within the confines of a convent, Agnes is a devout, innocent young nun accused of infanticide. As a psychiatrist - herself a lapsed Catholic - and the Mother Superior struggle over Agnes' fate, the play plunges deeply into the mystery of faith and the consequence of truth.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaethe | 12/2/2013

    " Great play with lots of drama, clever dialogue, great parts for women. Not a realistic portrayal of psychiatry, however. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wayne | 10/14/2013

    " The hands of many prayers rise like vines entwined in grief...Oh for more stage miracles like this "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kellie | 12/19/2012

    " My friend recommended it and it seemed really interesting when she described it to me. It actually was pretty interesting but it wasn't something that I would normally read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha J. | 11/15/2012

    " I read this book for a class I'm teaching. Very interesting from a psychology standpoint, incredibly sad from a personal standpoint. The characters are fascinating and the way their lives are intertwined make for a gut-wrenching read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 7/30/2012

    " nuns, immaculate conception, pregnant teenagers - fun times all around "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven Beales | 5/6/2012

    " Difficult play where a young nun is found with a murdered baby. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Jay | 3/15/2012

    " Very interesting look at science vs. faith. Three great roles for women. I think, like so many plays, some of the impact is lost in reading it, as opposed to seeing it. I've seen it performed and really loved it. I also love the movie version. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Almira | 2/17/2012

    " I love this play because it is extremely well written. The rhythm of the dialogue is amazing, and the characters have great depth. It was a wonderful time in my life to portray Agnes when I graduated from college. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth Bordelon | 2/6/2012

    " just finished re-reading it...challenging and powerful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mara | 1/14/2012

    " Compelling, disturbing, thought-provoking drama. Must play the whole role of Agnes one day! "

    " what happens to young girl who knows nothing about sex, but who knows only about God, who becomes pregnant? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Playwright42 | 12/9/2011

    " I like to think of it at the play that would be if Alan from Equus was a nun instead of a boy. It doesn't get into her head as much as I would have liked though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jien | 10/15/2011

    " I had hoped this play would be better, but the climax was unexciting and the ending left much to be desired. It was just okay. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan Ackerson | 7/17/2011

    " A cloistered nun is discovered to have given birth--very similarly to "Plain Truth", this book follows the investigation into how the pregnancy could have occurred. "
