Set in a Church School in the Bronx in 1964, just one year after John F. Kennedy’s assassination and on the brink of the Civil Rights Movement, Doubt, a Parable examines how far one is willing to go in the name of Truth. Themes of social hierarchy within the parish steer a passionate conflict surrounding the school’s first African-American student. Doubt, a Parable earned John Patrick Shanley a Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and was later made into an Academy Award-nominated film starring Meryl Streep and Phillip Seymour Hoffman. This drama discusses weighty issues and raises questions that do not have firm answers—one that will leave you thinking long after the theatre lights fade.
