Sunshine Coast theatre lovers are already booking for The Lind's upcoming production of the famous drama Agnes of God by John Pielmeier.

WeekendNotes readers may be familiar with the story from the 1985 movie adaptation starring Jane Fonda, Anne Bancroft and Meg Tilly.
This award-winning dramatic play ran for 599 performances in its first Broadway release in 1982, and has been produced all around the world since then. Its enduring popularity lies not only in its riveting and suspenseful story, but in its ability to make the audience ask big questions, just as the characters in the play do.

A young nun (Genevieve Langford) stands accused of murdering her newborn infant in her room, and a court appointed psychiatrist (Naomi Clasholm) is sent to question whether she is mentally fit to be brought to trial. Mother Superior Miriam Ruth (Yvie Somerville) is concerned not only to protect Agnes, but also their cloistered way of life.

But none of these characters is without a backstory, and the investigation will rouse clashes and challenges for them all.

Want to find out why audiences have been intrigued by Agnes of God for so many years? This production by highly experienced director Judith Boyd (Calendar Girls, Hating Alison Ashley) will resonate with you for many years to come.

Agnes of God opens 28 September at 7:30 and continues till October 6 at Lind Lane Theatre, 16 Mitchell St, Nambour. Bookings online via or phone 1300 732 764.
