"Agnes of God" by John Pielmeier
Our 2018 season premiere and inaugural production in the brand new Peel the Limelight Studio will be the Broadway hit “Agnes of God” by John Pielmeier.
The production will open on International Women's Day March 8th. In our current world, where the moral compass is constantly brought into question, the campaigns #MeToo and #TimesUp have thrown light on harassment and abuse, and give the people affected a voice. "Agnes of God" tells just such a story from the shadows.
Agnes, a young novitiate in a cloistered convent, gives birth to a child with no recollection of the event. Dr. Martha Livingstone, a court appointed Psychiatrist, is charged with evaluating her mental state, whilst Mother Miriam Ruth has been charged by God to protect her. Saints and sinners, medicine and miracles – it is the conflict between science and religion, the temporal and spiritual, and ultimately between facts and faith.

Cultural entrepreneurship in the 21st century
In this thought-provoking lecture, Peel the Limelight's Executive Producer Jaime Zúñiga argues entrepreneurship has played, and continues to play, a significant role in the evolution of the performing arts. From William Shakespeare's involvement in the construction of the Globe Theatre in 16th century London to the success of Duke Ellington's Orchestra in 20th century America, he explains how their creative genius achieved great heights thanks to their own entrepreneurial spirit and draws important lessons that cultural entrepreneurs in 21st century Bangkok could apply in their artistic journey.
