John Patrick Shanley’s DOUBT, A Parable won the Pulitzer Prize in 2004 for Drama. In a Catholic church and school in the Bronx in 1964, the school’s Principal, Sister Aloysius suspects that Father Flynn is paying too much personal attention to a young student. Sister Aloysius sets off on a personal crusade to unearth the truth. With the help of a younger teacher, Sister James, she sets out to get the Priest removed from the church. However, questions arise regarding her accusations. Is her obsession warranted or is Father Flynn innocent of her charges? What do you do when you are not sure? Adapted into the Academy Award nominated film (with Meryl Streep and Viola Davis), Shanley’s stage play is written with an uncanny blend of compassion and detachment. “ It is an inspired study in moral uncertainty with the compelling structure of an old-fashioned detective drama” says Ben Brantley, N.Y. Times. This timely play is a thought-provoking evening of high drama that is unpreachy and full of startling twists and turns.
