Doubt: A Parable
This award-winning play will linger long after you see it. You’ll ponder, talk about and debate with others (and yourself) the overall question: What did Father Flynn do or not do? The two protagonists are Father Flynn (Gary Wright) and Sister Aloysius (Sharon Winegar), who are worthy opponents going toe-to-toe, steely eye to steely eye. Wright and Winegar finesse these tricky parts, portraying formidable foes who are both sympathetic and outrageous, making each of them believable—a key component to the success of the play. Their final bout is mesmerizing.
