Doubt Playwright Shanley will Appear at Barnes and Noble on May 25th

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright John Patrick Shanley will appear at Barnes & Noble Lincoln Triangle (1972 Broadway) on Wednesday, May 25th at 6:00 PM to speak about his behind-the-scenes experience on Doubt; a question and answer session and script signing will follow.

Doubt, which is currently playing at the Walter Kerr Theatre, has all but swept the awards season; it won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play of the Year, the Drama League Award for Distinguished Play, the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Play and the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Play. The production is nominated for eight Tony Awards, including Best Play.

Produced on Broadway by Carole Shorenstein Hays, MTC Productions, Inc. (Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director; Barry Grove, Executive Producer), Roger Berlind and Scott Rudin, Doubt is directed by Doug Hughes and stars Cherry Jones as Sister Aloysius and Brían F. O'Byrne as Father Flynn, with Heather Goldenhersh as Sister James and Adriane Lenox as Mrs. Muller.

As described in the press release, Doubt is "set against the backdrop of a Bronx Catholic school in 1964, and is the story of a strong-minded woman faced with a difficult decision. Should she voice concerns about one of her male colleagues…even if she's not entirely certain of the truth?"

Doubt is author John Patrick Shanley's first play to be produced on Broadway. Other credits include Sailor's Song, Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, Cellini, Savage in Limbo, the dreamer examines his pillow, Beggars in the House of Plenty, Welcome to the Moon, Four Dogs and a Bone, Italian American Reconciliation, Missing/Kissing and The Big Funk.

Doubt's performance schedule is Tuesday through Saturday at 8:00 PM, with matinees on Wednesday and Saturday at 2:00 PM, and Sunday at 3:00 PM.

Tickets, which range from $26.25 to $90.25, are available by calling TeleCharge  at 212-239-6200 or can be ordered through at or at the Walter Kerr box office (219 West 48th Street).
