BWW Review: Exquisite AGNES OF GOD at Epic Theatre Photo BWW Review: Exquisite AGNES OF GOD at Epic Theatre

Despite the fact that Norman Jewison's AGNES OF GOD has existed as both an award-winning play and later film, it doesn't seem to have been produced very often.  That's all the more reason to rush out and see Epic Theatre's well-executed version of a play that is strange, fascinating and heartbreaking. Juxtaposing the mystical with legal is always good fodder for a thorny debate, and this solid cast delivers the layered and complicated humanity needed to make the story resonate.

Lynne Collinson, WomensWork's Creative Director says, ‚ÄúLast Lists of My Mad Mother,¬†ticks all the boxes for the type of play WomensWork wants to explore:¬†¬†a¬†well written script, meaningful material, and a story told from a woman's point-of-view that features women over the age of 40 ‚Äď an underserved on-stage demographic. The play takes us on an emotional journey of discovery that's ultimately simple, true, and relevant for anyone who has been a caregiver or watched the decline of a loved one.

Epic Theatre Company continues its season of "Conviction" with a sophisticated and sharp comedy about four famous women in the midst of a revolution. Set during the Reign of Terror, Olympe de Gouges, Charlotte Corday, Marianne Angelle, and Marie Antoinette banter, scheme, plan a murder, and debate their part in history in this fantastical and fabulous play about what we can do to change the world around us and whether we have the conviction to do it.
