Directed by Meredith King
Thursdays through Sundays
October 3rd through October 27, 2019

In this brilliant and powerful drama, Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students. Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award. "All the elements come invigoratingly together like clockwork in John Patrick Shanley's provocative play, DOUBT, a gripping story of suspicion cast on a priest's behavior that is less about scandal than about fascinatingly nuanced questions of moral certainty." —Variety. "Blunt yet subtle, manipulative but full of empathy for all sides, the play is set in 1964 but could not be more timely. In just ninety fast-moving minutes, Shanley creates four blazingly individual people. DOUBT is a lean, potent drama…passionate, exquisite, important and engrossing." —NY Newsday. "An eloquent and provocative investigation of truth and consequences. A gripping mystery, tightly written." —Time Out NY.
