All answers will be questioned.

This thought-provoking drama about a novice accused of murdering her newborn questions belief and disbelief, goodness and sanctity, guilt and innocence. Strung on the taut clothesline of a murder mystery, this play snaps with compelling dialogue. A nun gives birth. A baby is strangled. Who murdered the child, and why?

Agnes of God explores how the madness of our own reimaginings works to protect us from past trauma.
