Doubt

Pacific Theatre is running Doubt until March 31. Their website says:

"A progressive priest locks horns with Sister Aloysius, an orthodox nun who guards the young students in her care as fiercely as she upholds order, tradition, and discipline. When a new teacher suspects Father Flynn of paying too much attention to one of her students, Sister Aloysius launches a crusade to expose the truth at any cost. A tightly woven mystery, this Pulitzer Prize winner is an eloquent, provocative investigation of elusive truth and terrible consequence."

I performed this play off-off-Broadway in New York City, and so for that reason, and because of my Catholic upbringing, it’s one of my favourite pieces. John Patrick Shanley is a divine playwright, and the story of secrecy and sexual abuse in the Catholic church is as relevant today as in the play’s 1964 time period.
