Photo Flash: First Look at DOUBT, Opening Tonight at Writers Theatre
Writers Theatre presents Doubt: A Parable by John Patrick Shanley, directed by William Brown, running now through July 19, 2015 at Glencoe Union Church, 263 Park Ave, Glencoe. The play opens tonight, May 6 and tomorrow, May 7. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
Writers Theatre is thrilled to bring audiences this riveting, Pulitzer Prize-winning play about authority, suspicion, ambiguity and religion in an exciting, site-specific production staged in the library of the Glencoe Union Church.
Set against the backdrop of a 1960s America in the midst of political and social change, a progressive young priest's conduct comes under question by Sister Aloysius Beauvier, the school principal whose beliefs are deeply rooted in tradition. As the actions and motivations of each are scrutinized and suspicion mounts, the two are drawn into a battle of wills that threatens irrevocable consequences for all involved. The Writers Theatre production-directed by William Brown-will allow the audience to be a fly on the church wall, observing as battle lines are drawn, allegiances are formed and motives are called into question.
The designers are Kevin Depinet (Scenic Designer), Rachel Anne Healy (Costume Designer), Sarah Hughey (Lighting Designer), Andy Hansen (Sound Designer) and D.J Reed (Properties Designer). The Stage Manager is Becky Pechter.
Tickets are $35-$75 and are available at the Box Office, 321 Park Avenue, Glencoe; 847-242-6000 or online at writerstheatre.org. Find Writers Theatre on Facebook at Facebook.com/WritersTheatre or follow @WritersTheatre on Twitter.
