Photo Flash: 'Doubt' at Tricycle Theatre

Nicolas Kent, the Tricycle Theatre's Artistic Director directs Dearbhla Molloy as Sister Aloysius, Nikki Amuka-Bird as Mrs Muller, Padraic Delaney as Father Flynn and Marcella Plunkett as Sister James in the British premiere of John Patrick Shanley's Doubt  through January 12, 2008 (Opening Night is November 26).  Designs are by John Gunter with lighting by Rachael McCutcheon.

"Doubt is set in 1964, the year after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, at a Bronx Catholic School where a strong-minded nun wrestles with her conscience in the face of concerns about one of the priests. Sister Aloysius reveals her initial doubts about the enigmatic Father Flynn to Sister James, an inexperienced but enthusiastic young nun. As her suspicions grow about his inappropriate behavior with the school's first black student, a verbal battle of wills begins and she instigates a relentless campaign to remove the priest," explain press notes.

Doubt received its World premiere in 2004 off Broadway at the Manhattan Theatre Club directed by Doug Hughes.  It later transferred to the Walter Kerr Theatre where it won four Tony Awards including Best New Play, as well as a Pulitzer Prize.

Performances through January 12, 2008 (Opening Night is November 26): Monday – Saturday at 8PM, Saturday matinee at 4PM.  The Tricycle Theatre is located at 269 Kilburn High Road, London NW6 7JR.
