Monday 3rd - Saturday 8th June, 2019

In 1964 the winds of change are sweeping through St Nicholas Church school in the Bronx where the first black student, Donald Muller has just been accepted. The Church school is run by Sister Aloysius, a rigidly conservative nun, who insists upon constant vigilance. Father Flynn the beloved, charismatic parish priest, is advocating reform of the school's strict customs.

When the impressionable but inexperienced teacher, Sister James expresses her observations to Sister Aloysius about Father Flynn calling Donald Muller out of class and that on his return he acted differently and "I think there was alcohol on his breath"; Sister Aloysius begins a personal crusade against the priest - despite her lack of evidence.

Doubt, A Parable, by John Patrick Stanley; won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and 8 Tony Awards, including Best Play. Doubt was turned into an Academy Award-nominated film starring Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams and Viola Davis.
