BWW Review: Exquisite AGNES OF GOD at Epic Theatre Photo BWW Review: Exquisite AGNES OF GOD at Epic Theatre
by Andria Tieman - Feb 9, 2020

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.

Juliet was traditionally played by a boy. A man played Medea. For centuries, women have been consigned to play lesser parts in the creation and production of theater. And even as progress is being made, gender and age parity, onstage and off, continues to be a major issue in the theater.
