September 7th - 29th at 59e59 Theaters

Charlie's been missing, and his roommates have a lot of questions for him. Trapped by a storm on the night of his mysterious return, they each discover how easy it is to miss the mark when it comes to the people you love. With heart, humor and a touch of the bizarre, AGNES explores vulnerability, our limited understanding of Aspergers, and how we strive for human connection, even when it seems impossible.

Casting and design team to be announced soon.


AGNES is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. 


In partnership with the TDF National Autism Friendly Performances Program, Lesser America and 59E59 will present a Relaxed/Sensory-Friendly performance of AGNES on Saturday, September 15th at 3pm.
