The Stage Company announces open auditions for Agnes of God, in the Gallery of the Varsity Center, 418 S. Illinois Ave., Carbondale, at 6:30 pm, on Sunday and Monday, November 12 and 13, with callbacks on Tuesday, November 14.

Summoned to a convent, Dr. Martha Livingstone, a court-appointed psychiatrist, is charged with assessing the sanity of a novice accused of murdering her newborn. Miriam Ruth, the Mother Superior, determinedly keeps young Agnes from the doctor, arousing Livingstone’s suspicions further. Who killed the infant and who fathered the tiny victim? Livingstone’s questions force all three women to re-examine the meaning of faith and the power of love leading to a dramatic, compelling climax.
