The Summit Playhouse presents "Agnes of God"

(SUMMIT, NJ) -- The Summit Playhouse presents Agnes of God by John Pielmeier. The production runs during the weekends from February 23- through March 9, 2024, at The Summit Playhouse. Summoned to a convent, Dr. Martha Livingstone, a court-appointed psychiatrist, must assess the sanity of a novice accused of murdering her newborn.

The Mother Superior determinedly keeps young Agnes from the doctor, further arousing Livingstone’s suspicions. 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.

The production is directed by Karen Thornton. The cast includes Missy Renwick (Agnes), Jennifer Padley (Doctor), and Debra Carozza (Mother). Producer: Leslie Schwartz; Stage Manager: Christine Petruzzell; and Assistant Stage Manager: Paris Bate.

Performances take place February 23, 24 @ 8:00pm; February 25 @ 2:00pm; March 1, 2, 8, 9 @ 8:00pm; and March 3 @ 2:00pm. Tickets are available for purchase online. The Summit Playhouse is located at 10 New England Avenue in Summit, New Jersey. The Summit Playhouse lobby, auditiorium, lounge, and lobby restroom are fully accessible and ADA compliant.

The production team includes Set Design: Gordon Wiener; Set Construction: Ed Whittman, Roy Pancirov; Sound Design: Samori Etienne; Assistant Sound Design: Wendy Roome; Lighting Design: Mark Reilly; Props: Paula Ehrenberg; Costumes: Ann Lowe; Fight/Intimacy Director: Katie Claire; and Dramaturgy: Grace Ahlin.
