Play by John Patrick Shanley


Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play in 2005, Doubt is a thought-provoking play examining the question, “What do you do when you are not sure?” In 1964, at a Catholic school in the Bronx, Sister Aloysius sets “doubt” in motion by pursuing her suspicions about a young and progressive priest.

Clashes of wills, generations, and ideologies, wrapped in moral uncertainty, promise to create a compelling and engrossing evening of theater.

Recommended for a mature audiences, ages fourteen and older. Due to the full-length nature of the show, children younger than six cannot be admitted.

$18 Tickets • $16 for Seniors and Students • $20 for Box Seats


From the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops: The Catholic Church has made great strides in correcting the environment that provided an opportunity for the sexual abuse scandal. The movie Doubt, like the play, does an excellent job of portraying the complexities surrounding the issues.
