Agnes of God Opens BOP's 2014-2015 Season

A Bold, Challenging Drama

Bisbee’s Obscure Productions opens their 2014-15 Season with Agnes of God by John Pielmeier. Agnes of God is a gripping drama about a young nun found with a dead baby in her wastebasket. Dr. Livingstone is hired to assess Sister Agnes’s sanity but wants to dig deeper. Will Mother Miriam Ruth allow the doctor to find out the truth?

Director Elizabeth Henley chose the show for its bold female characters and their ability to capture the audience's attention with their strong opposing points of view. Patrons will find themselves drawn into the fray. BOP is proud to support Elizabeth in this thesis project for a Directing degree from Roosevelt University.  Each year her adviser travels the country to view and assess all the thesis shows in the program, and he'll be coming to Bisbee for this production also.

Sharon Strachan, who plays Mother Miriam, says, “[Agnes of God] deals with philosophical and religious questions that many of us grapple with, the questions of miracle and belief and the interplay of science and religion.

Debby Gardner, who plays Dr. Livingstone says, “This play is about a doubtful psychiatrist who fails in her attempt to use her science to help a young nun but succeeds” at opening her own eyes.
