Miriam Ruth, the Mother Superior, determindly keeps young Agnes from the doctor, arousing Livingstone's suspicions further. Who killed the infant and who fathered the tiny victim?

"Outstanding play [that]...deals intelligently with questions of religion and psychology."-The New York Times

"Unquestionably blindingly theatrical...cleverly executed blood and guts evening in the theatre."-New York Post

Awesome play! I bought for class and I'm definitely going to keep on my bookshelf.
Felolak
Wonderful play that I would read again and again. The script was in excellent condition, and had a wonderful list of props and set peices in the back that was very helpful for visualizing the play. Samuel French is wonderful!

Meg Tilly: wonderful. Jane Fonda; cold and flat. Anne Bancroft: excellent. The changes in the screenplay from the script are odd choices. Keeping Dr. Livingstone's mother alive is awkwardly done. The ending is different. Most of all, Jane Fonda as the doctor is flat-toned and lacking depth. The fact that there are her iconic barbells on the mantel of her woodsy home said, "we cast Jane because she's hot at the moment, at the height of her career, even if it's a success in workout videos instead of acting." I would love to have seen someone with more range in her role.

Great play with strong characters who develop and change deeply throughout the course of the play.

I heard a lot about this play. Finally reading it, felt its power, doubts, and mister you behind each word..

The script arrived in time for my audition. Other than two small marks, it was in unblemished condition and completely usable for my purpose of preparing for the audition.
