AGNES OF GOD —– Summoned to a convent, DR. Martha Livingstone, a court appointed psychiatrist, is charged with assessing the sanity of a young novitiate 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.
Dr. Martha Livingstone . . .
in her forties. A tough, no nonsense psychiatrist. Not a fan of Religion.
Mother Miriam Ruth . . .
In her Fifties. Street smart. Came to the church later in life.
Agnes . . .
Is innocent and naïve.. In her early twenties. Has always been protected.
