About this show

Are the sins of the past more painful in the present? Father Flynn is a neighborhood priest and teacher at a co-ed Bronx Catholic School in 1964. Has he fostered a casual approachability with students for evil intent? The watchful and stubborn principal, Sister Aloysious, suspects Flynn of abuse but Sister James believes the best in everyone. Explore this mystery about a suspicious nun, a boy, the Church, and a pragmatic mother's attempt to resolve a conflict so relevant to our times. Academy Award winner Linda Hunt stars in John Patrick Shanley's Doubt, directed by Claudia Weill. "John Patrick Shanley's engrossing drama made every major critic's year-end top 10 list, usually landing in the No. 1 spot. It's also a sellout...a shoo-in to win this year's New York Drama Critic's Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk Awards; the front-runner for the Pulitzer Prize...the play to beat in June at the Tony Awards." -- New York Post "A tight, absorbing and expertly acted new drama." -- New York Times "Gripping...powerful. Doubt turns headline material into deeply moving drama." -- Daily News "Important, engrossing, passionate, exquisite." -- Newsday "Engrossing, moving and amusing, Doubt couldn't be more timely." -- New York Post "A theatrical experience it would be sinful to miss." -- New York Magazine
