“What do you do when you’re not sure?”
John Patrick Shanley’s award-winning one-act play is about a harsh and determined nun who suspects a beloved priest of molesting an altar boy. At St. Nicholas Church School in the Bronx, 1964, the stern principal Sister Aloysius and the compassionate Father Flynn are constantly at odds. Their contrasting worldviews lead them to view their students, parishioners, and the world in starkly different ways. So when young Sister James comes to Sister Aloysius with concerns about private meetings between Father Flynn and the school’s first black student, Donald Muller, Sister Aloysius embarks on a campaign to challenge the priest in an intensely personal and increasingly vicious way. Winner of multiple awards, including the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play, Doubt deals with themes of doubt, faith, and morality in a refreshingly nuanced manner — eschewing easy answers to leave audiences thinking and talking for weeks afterwards.
