ABOUT THE PLAY
Summoned to a convent, Dr. Martha Livingstone, a court-appointed psychiatrist, is charged with assessing the
sanity of Agnes, a novice nun accused of murdering her newborn. During her investigation of the death, which
inevitably leads to questions of the child’s conception, Dr. Livingstone contends with objections from the convent’s\culating Mother Superior, the church itself, and even Agnes, who professes total ignorance of both the process
of procreation and of her own pregnancy. As questions are asked and secrets revealed, the three women are
forced to re-examine the meaning of faith, the power of love and the existence of modern day miracles.
