FEST and The Amelia Earhart Playhouse host performances of the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning John Patrick Shanley drama, “Doubt: A Parable.”
In this brilliant and powerful play, Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students. Did he or didn’t he? Did Father Flynn, beloved parish priest and basketball coach at St. Nicholas Church and School, molest troubled student Donald? Did he get him drunk on altar wine in the rectory? Has he done this before? Exacting, conservative school principal Sister Aloysius certainly thinks so, and she will have none of it.
The drama is performed through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. “Doubt: A Parable” was originally produced on Broadway by Carole Shorenstein Hays, MTC Productions, Roger Berlind and Scott Rudin on March 31, 2005. The play was turned into an Academy Award-nominated film starring Philip Seymour Hoffman as Father Flynn and Meryl Streep as Sister Aloysius.
The cast of this production are: Sister Aloysius (Havi Lepage), Father Flynn (Jeff Book), Sister James (Sarah Hauserman) and Mrs Muller (Lateasha Sass). The play is directed by Nate Records.
