Doubt: A Parable on November 8-10, 2012

Doubt: A Parable will be performed at 7:30 pm, November 8-10, in The Black Box Theater, on the Concordia University Texas campus. Single play tickets are $7.00 in advance and $10.00 at the door, for general admission.  Cash or check only. To reserve tickets, please call 512-313-PLAY. Patrons are advised to buy tickets early, as the show is expected to sell out.

The play, set in St. Nicholas’s Catholic Church and School in the Bronx, 1964, is not about elections; however, its investigation into questions of moral and ethical certainty is timely. Doubt tells the story of school principal, Sister Aloysius, who takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of having an improper relationship with the school’s first African-American student. In the course of the play, the audience witnesses four opposing characters, all seemingly trying to do the right thing, and is left to decide whom to believe.

The all-student cast features Terry Hillis, as Father Flynn, Elizabeth Oerther, as Sister Aloysius, KyLene Pederson, as Sister James, and Shina Bharadwaja, as Mrs. Muller. Visiting director, Dr. Kelly Carolyn Gordon, is staging the production.

 

Doubt: A Parable is presented through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service. All authorized performance materials are also supplied by DPS: 440 Park Avenue South, New York, New York, 10016. www.dramatists.com
