Disappointing, Painful, Cliched, Banal

See it if you are a friend of the actors. Nice staging.

Don't see it if Just don't. Really amateur acting and dialogue. Need a lot of work. Read more

Amateur, Slow, Prosaic, Cliched

See it if you want to see a poor man's "1984", with a rather silly premise, far too many characters, and not nearly enough cuts to the mundane script.

Don't see it if you expect a polished, professional production or an original dystopian story. [The interminable courtroom scene is illogical & ridiculous.]

"Finds strength in its political voice...However, these important themes are sometimes lost in 'Agnus’s' unfocused plot...The creative team makes the most of the intimate Lion Theatre, using staging techniques, lighting, and projection design to make the production feel grand and evocative...There are elements of brilliance tucked away in an ambitious script and characters worth exploring, but these elements are intertwined with a story that often feels both unfinished and unfulfilling."
