Doubt: A Parable A drama by John Patrick Shanley runs October 23, 24, 25, 30, 31 & November 1

Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and 2005 Tony Award for Best Play, this is a powerful parable about paranoia and pedophilia in The catholic Church. Set in a parochial school in the Bronx in 1964, the play is shaped as a battle of wills between the severe, absolutist Sister Aloysius and the more doctrinally flexible Father Flynn. As Sister Aloysius pursues her intuition that the priest is molesting a boy in her school, the play presents a balance of conflicting viewpoints through a wrenching exploration of thought and personality. It is a dramatic and provocative study of the tenuous nature of faith and the inconstancy of justice.

Director Michael J. Saunders, who most recently directed Proof and Enchanted April for the Old Opera House, brings this raw and thought-provoking drama to the Old Opera House stage with a talented cast that includes:

Sister Aloysius Beauvier Robin dePietro-Jurand
Sister James Amber Dawn Levow
Mrs. Muller Rhonda Monroe
Father Brendan Flynn Steven Brewer

"Inspired and extraordinary ... a superb new drama." -- The New York Times
"(Doubt is) an issue-driven play that is unpreachy, thought-provoking, and full of startling twists and turns." -- Wall Street Journal
