Tickets for Agnes

Now On Sale

Agnes of God is a riveting psychological thriller that follows a court psychiatrist assessing a young nun on trial for manslaughter of the baby no one knew she was pregnant with, perhaps not even her. Mystical, harrowing, and puzzling, the play is Rosemary’s Baby meets docu-drama meets The Exorcist in its themes of bodily autonomy, religious devotion, and supernatural ambiguity.

Looking Back in our archives - circa 1964:

Volunteer members of the Santa Monica Theatre Guild start the work of construction by installing a privacy and safety wall around the property at 2627 Pico Blvd. Famous Pickle Bills in the background - it was later replaced by an office building now used by Santa Monica College.
