Doubt: A Parable By John Patrick Shanley--July 11 – 14, 2013.A riveting clash of conscience and conviction turns the stuff of headlines into exquisite, engrossing drama. When she suspects a popular and dedicated priest of misconduct with a student, Sister Aloysius takes matters into her own hands. But doubt thwarts all assumptions in this ambiguous mystery, clouding truth with complexity, and righteousness with remorse. Call to make reservations and for further information check the website.
