Played with depth, nuance, and a whole lot of heart by Lisa McConnell, Dr. Martha Livingstone, the central storyteller in this brilliantly acted two-hour drama from Aleatoric Theatre Company, says, “I believe in the existence of an alternate last reel.” But a happy ending never materializes. The same holds true of her encounters with Sister Agnes (Courtney Stennett) and the Mother Superior (Joette Waters). Agnes is accused of killing her newborn child, whose father remains the ultimate mystery, and Dr. Livingstone is appointed by the court to determine her sanity. Mother Superior calls Agnes an innocent, but she’s not an enigma, and unraveling her psyche raises more questions about God, faith, and miracles than the doctor could have imagined. —Marissa Oberlander
