Doubt (A Parable)


What do you do when you’re not sure?

Doubt: A Parable is set in 1964 but could not be more timely.  Sister Aloysius, a Bronx Catholic school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students.

This 2005 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play delves into the murky shadows of moral certainty and balances on the thin line between truth and consequences. An intense, potent drama that raises questions and answers none, leaving the audience to grapple with the discomfort of their own uncertainty.
