A parable (par·a·ble | \ ˈper-ə-bəl), according to Merriam-Webster, is “a usually short fictitious story that illustrates a moral attitude or a religious principle.”
Sister Aloysius, a school principal with a mandate to uphold tradition, is certain something’s terribly wrong about the relationship between a young parish priest and a troubled boy. But beneath her moral crusade to reveal the horrible truth lies a chasm of doubt, where the choices we make can reverberate beyond our imagining.
Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, Doubt was adapted for a film starring Meryl Streep as Sister Aloysius and Philip Seymour Hoffman as Father Flynn in 2008.
We hope that this quiet, dramatic play starts conversations across generations, across faiths, and invites all those in our community to engage with us.
