Doubt by John Patrick Shanley is directed by Timothy Near. Doubt is the second production of Center REP's 42nd subscription season. Doubt is made possible by the generous support of the Contra Costa Times, Chevron, and The Diablo Regional Arts Association.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, Doubt is a riveting drama that has had audiences on the edge of their seats since its groundbreaking New York run. On the surface, it is a ripped-from-the-headlines story of a questionable priest and his relation with a young parishioner. Deeper down, however, it is one of the most balanced psychological dramas ever written, pitting a doctrine-wielding nun (legendary actress Lorri Holt) against a progressive Father (Kevin Rolston). In the end, the audience will be left wondering who, if anyone, is just.
