Doubt, winner of both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, is set in a fictional Bronx Catholic school in the 60s. The school’s principal, Sister Aloysius, is trying to navigate whether or not sexual misconduct may be occuring between the parish priest, Father Flynn, and the school’s first African American student. Sister James, a naive and impressionable young nun, does not know who to believe as Flynn and Aloysius continue to confront each other.
Flock Theatre is internationally renowned for their intimate, small-audience theatre presentations, known for their monumental production of Long Day’s Journey Into Night in the Monte Cristo Cottage. The Thames Club’s beautiful antiquity naturally sets Doubt in the interior of the fictional St. Nicholas Church School, providing the small audience with a sense of immersion as the four actors seamlessly transfer from scene to scene around them.
The performance is in one act and will run for approximately 90 minutes.
