Auditions for AGNES OF GOD

Auditions for AGNES OF GOD
by John Pielmeier
directed by Josh Sazon

THREE WOMEN REQUIRED. Auditions for the final production of Iowa City Community Theatre’s Sixtieth Season. Written by John Pielmeier, directed by Josh Sazon.

A court-appointed psychiatrist is summoned to a convent to assess the sanity of a young novitiate, Agnes, who is accused of murdering her newborn. The convent’s mother superior is determined to keep Agnes away from the doctor, saying that her questions will do more harm than good. Conflict ensues between the psychiatrist and the older nun over Agnes’s mental and spiritual health, and the play becomes an examination of contrasts between science and religion, between the temporal and spiritual, and between facts and faith.

PERFORMANCES
Performance dates are on the evenings of April 22-23 and 29-30, with matinees on April 24 and May 1 at the Johnson County Fairgrounds in Iowa City.

AUDITIONS
Auditions will be held on Saturday February 13th from 1:00pm – 4:00pm in Meeting Room A at the Iowa City Public Library.

Actors will be given sides (a brief selection) from the play and should be prepared to perform a cold reading (directly from the script without preparation) during auditions. A full script will be available at the Iowa City Public Library reference desk for perusal.

Characters List
Agnes – A 21 year old novice nun. Agnes is a true innocent, and dependent upon the Church for her well-being and security. She is a true believer without artifice or agenda. She is accused of killing a child to whom she gives birth in the convent although she refuses to acknowledge the birth.

Mother Miriam Ruth. Age range: early 50s-60s. Mother Superior of the convent at which Agnes lives. She has been previously married and came into the Church later in life. She has children from which she is
estranged. She is tough, smart, and fierce in her protection of Agnes.

Dr. Martha Livingstone. Age range: mid 30s-40s. She is Agnes’ appointed psychiatrist, a lapsed Catholic driven, in this case, as much by her skepticism and resentment of the Church as by her faith in psychiatry.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
In this timeless tale, two New Yorkers accidentally discover a magical village that comes to life for one day every one hundred years. They meet delightful people in the midst of wedding preparations, buying and selling from the Fair. Although the town is surreal, the residents are not; their hopes and dreams speak to us as clearly as any contemporary setting. Amidst beautiful music, Scottish dancing, and clever dialog, and a tear or two, you will believe that miracles can happen.
