TheatreUNI: Doubt

TheatreUNI: Doubt

Thursday, April 12, 2018 - 7:30 pm

Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play, Doubt, by John Patrick Shanley, continues to resonate in our present world. When should we trust? Whom should we trust? Why must we trust? Must we live in a world of doubt, suspicion and fear? Set in a parochial school in 1964, Doubtfocuses on the charismatic Father Flynn and his interest in a young student, a naïve young nun and the skeptical nature of the school’s principal, Sister Aloysius.  Doubt is a tense, dramatic examination of the potential danger of blind trust and the roles of men vs. women, faith vs. doubt, and tradition vs. change.
