Doubt: A Parable
Sister Aloysius suspects Father Flynn of improper relations with a male student.
Bay Street Players’ Avant-Garde Series presents a limited engagement of Doubt: A Parable, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama by John Patrick Shanley from May 13 to May 22.
“What do you do when you’re not sure?,” Father Flynn, the progressive and beloved priest at the St. Nicholas Church School in the Bronx, New York, poses in a sermon. It’s 1964, and times are changing—to the chagrin of rigid principal Sister Aloysius. However, when an unconscionable accusation is leveled against the Father, Sister Aloysius realizes that the only way to get justice is to create it herself. As for the truth of the matter? As Father Flynn says, “Doubt can be a bond as powerful and sustaining as certainty.”
In stunning prose, Shanley delves into the murky shadows of moral certainty, his characters always balancing on the thin line between truth and consequences. Doubt: A Parable is an exquisite, potent drama that raises questions and answers none, leaving the audience to grapple with the discomfort of their own uncertainty.
