Doubt

A Parable

By John Patrick Shanley

The Original, Live, Pulitzer Prize Version of an eloquent and provocative play

In this brilliant and powerful drama, Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the newly assigned Father Flynn of improprieties and wrongdoing with one of the students. She is certain of a transgression but is she on solid ground? A riveting mystery ensues of truth and consequences, tightly written. The play is also shaped throughout with moments of humor and brightness.

Doubt is one of the most honored plays of recent years, having won the Pulitzer Prize for drama, the Broadway Tony Award for Best Play, numerous other major theatre awards and wide popular and critical acclaim.

A breathtaking work of immense proportion . . positively brilliant — Melissa Rose Bernardo, Entertainment Weekly

A lean, potent drama...passionate, exquisite, important and engrossing...could not be more timely — Linda Winer, Newsday

Doubt is a great — let's repeat, great — new drama... Shanley's writing is incisive, insightful and masterfully controlled. Taut, yet thoughtful, the writing is direct and swift as an arrow — Michael Sommers, Newark Star-Ledger
