                                               Haley Johnson(above) and Mariel Goffredi

Thought-provoking and disturbing, Vintage Theatre’s compelling production of AGNES OF GOD is not to be missed.
     John Pielmeier was inspired to write this play when he came upon a newspaper article about an event that took place in a convent in Brighton, New York.
    After a successful run on Broadway, Norman Jewison directed a film adaptation of the play, starring Meg Tilly, Anne Bancroft and Jane Fonda.
     In Vintage Theatre’s production Haley Johnson portrays Dr. Martha Livingstone, a psychiatrist who is brought to the convent to determine the sanity of a young novice, who’s accused of killing her new-born child. 
     A radiant Mariel Goffredi performs the role of  Sister Agnes. 
     Emma Messenger portrays Mother Superior. 
     All three women deliver the requisite bravura acting.
    Ms. Goffredi’s performance is a tour de force. 
     Pillars flank the playing space, and swirling bolts of pure white tuele surround the set pieces, giving an otherworldly look to Cheryl Brodzinski’s scenic design. 
     Steve Tangedal's lighting design enhances the production exponentially.
      Taking us from the mundane to the sublime and back again, Craig Bond directs with a touch of the poet.Marlowe's Musings
