BARE BONES is an opportunity for Theatre@First to present a wider variety of plays to our audience in the spare, intense setting of a staged reading. It's also a great way to squeeze theatre into a busy schedule. There are no lines to learn, no blocking to keep straight, and just 4 or 5 rehearsals between auditions and a single performance.

ABOUT THE PLAY: Sister Agnes is charged with strangling her newborn baby, but has no recollection of the conception or birth. Enter Dr. Martha Livingstone, a psychiatrist with her own prejudices against the Catholic church who must determine whether or not the novice is fit to stand trial. Standing in her way is Mother Miriam Ruth, fiercely protective of Agnes for her own mysterious reasons. These three women embark on a journey through faith, doubt, need and miracles that will leave each of them changed forever.

Now's your chance to be part of Eugene O'Neill's rarely performed adaptation of Aeschylus's Oresteia.
