The Sandy River Players are pleased to open their 2018-19 theatrical season with “Agnes of God”, by John Pielmeier. This powerful and moving 2-act play explores the conflict between love, faith, and duty as a court-appointed psychiatrist and a mother superior clash over the fate of a young nun accused of killing her newborn daughter – a young nun who has no memory of being pregnant, or of giving birth to the child.
Performances will be held in the Emery Community Arts Center at UMF. Shows will begin at 7:00 pm on Friday, September 7th and Saturday, September 8th. There will be a matinee at 2:00 pm on Sunday, September 9th.
SRP is dedicating this production of “Agnes of God” to the memory of Nick Scott, a former Professor of Theater at UMF who passed away in March of 2018. Professor Scott taught theater and directed plays at UMF for 28 years. He retired in 2001. In addition to sharing his love of theater with UMF students, Scott was a strong supporter of the Sandy River Players and local theater.
