Agnes of God (All Weekend)
See the award winning play live on stage at City Theatre. Opening March 7 and running until March 23.

The story centers on Agnes, a novice nun who gives birth and insists that the dead child was the result of a virgin conception. The mystery unfolds as the Court appointed psychiatrist and the mother superior clash during the resulting investigation. This production takes you on an unforgettable journey through Agnes’s life; stark and harsh yet somehow filled with beauty, faith and the supernatural. Shows on Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday Matinees at 2pm. City Theatre 4025 31st Street South.
