Doubt, A Parable
September 14 – October 6
By John Patrick Shanley
Directed by Martin Rojas Dietrich
Featuring: Alexandrai Bond, Michael Lederman, Nancy Martin, and Kateri Rose.
Doubt, A Parable, has garnered rave reviews, including the prestigious 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play. Set in a Catholic school in the Bronx in 1964, Doubt pits traditional doctrine against modern ideas, order against openness, and faith against uncertainty.
The school’s principal is certain that a younger priest is sexually abusing one of her pupils. Her rigid opinions clash with the priest’s more modern and flexible outlook and the beliefs of the student’s mother, and eachpoint of view is eloquently presented. Doubt generates discussion about morality, faith, community, and the many facets of truth.
Doubt plays September 14 – October 6, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 pm; Sundays at 2 pm.
