DOUBT, A PARABLE by American playwright, screenwriter and director, John Patrick Shanley, is a tightly-woven mystery. This Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play is an eloquent, provocative investigation of elusive truth and terrible consequence, compelling and thought-provoking theatre.
Set in a Bronx Catholic school in 1964, this powerful drama examines the perils of moral certainty. Conservative Sister Aloysius suspects modern-minded and charismatic Father Flynn of inappropriate behaviour in the school. Once suspicion takes hold, can there be any room for doubt?
Critics proclaim DOUBT, A PARABLE to be an exquisite, potent drama that will raise questions and answer none, leaving the audience to grapple with the discomfort of their uncertainties.
