Doubt, A Parable
February 4 - February 25, 2018
Boasting multiple Tony Awards and a Pulitzer Prize, this drama features a characteristically mistrusting nun and principal named Sister Aloysius, who is certain that Father Flynn has molested Donald Muller, the school’s first “negro” student, soon after the boy’s arrival. A younger and more tender-hearted Sister James wants to believe another story. Set in 1964 in the Bronx’s fictional St. Nicholas Church School, rumors swirl as the story takes on a number of fraught issues that continue to resonate today: race, sexuality, tradition versus modernity and gender in the Catholic church.
