Whoever says one has to go to New York or LA to see great theatre obviously hasn’t seen, but should see, the current Coyote StageWorks production of “Agnes of God” currently on stage at the Annenberg Theatre in Palm Springs.

Agnes of God
By John Pielmeier
with Britt Adams, Valorie Armstrong and Marsha Waterbury
Directed by Don Amendolia
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, arousing Livingstone’s suspicions further. 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.
A major hit on Broadway and later on film with Jane Fonda, Meg Tilly and Ann Bancroft.
Riveting, powerful, electrifying drama…the dialogue crackles.
New York Daily News
Outstanding play [that]…deals intelligently with questions of religion and psychology.
The New York Times
Unquestionably blindingly theatrical…cleverly executed blood and guts evening in the theatre.
