In this contemporary murder mystery, set within the confines of a convent, Agnes is a devout, innocent young nun accused of infanticide. As a psychiatrist - herself a lapsed Catholic - and the Mother Superior struggle over Agnes' fate, the play plunges deeply into the mystery of faith and the consequence of truth.More
A murdered newborn is found in a convent, the product of a resident nun who denies both the baby and any sexual experience. Part mystery, part theology, part psychology, the play shifts from the mother to the protective mother superior to a lapsed Catholic psychiatrist with troubles of her own. This L.A. Theatre Works production succeeds on many levels as the three women strive to understand what happened and why, and the resulting impact on their lives. All three principals perform their difficult roles with great skill: They scream, they shout, they interrupt, they whisper and whimper, yet remain totally in command of their audioplay. A Broadway and film sensation, the play is equally good on audio.

A fascinating play brought sharply to life
I FELT THERE WERE TOO MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS
MAYBE. IT WAS A PLAY. IT DID NOT TAKE TOO LONG TO HEAR, BUT NOT FOR EVERYONE.
I DON'T KNOW. I WOULD HAVE TO SEE WHAT IT WAS ABOUT. I WOULD NOT WANT A BOOK WITH SO MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS.
THE SPEAKING WAS CLEAR BUT I DID NOT LIKE THE VOICE OF THE NARATOR.
I DID SEE THE MOVIE. AND IT LEFT JUST AS MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS.
THO IT WAS NOT A TOP READ I AM NOT SORRY I BOUGHT THE BOOK. I DID WANT TO KNOW IF THERE WAS UNANSWERED QUESTIONS IN THE MOVIE THAT THE STORY WOULD GIVE ME. IT DID NOT. BUT I WANTED TO KNOW JUST IN CASE. IF YOU HAVE SEEN THE MOVIE, IT TELLS YOU ALL THE PLAY WILL TELL YOU AND NO MORE.
