ST. PETERSBURG - See award-winning play, Agnes of God, by John Pielmeier, March 7-23, at City Theatre, 4025 31st St. S. in St. Petersburg.
Seldom does a play strike at the heart and expose the viewer in a way that both horrifies and humanizes life. This play dares to.
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.
Show times are Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $22 and available online at www.spcitytheatre.org or call the box office at 727-866-1973. The theatre is located just off I-275 and is sponsored in part by the City of St. Petersburg.
