“Doubt: A Parable,” closes at Theatre Workshop of Owensboro this weekend. The final performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Trinity Centre, 407 W. Fifth St. “Doubt” is a Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning play. It was made into a film that was released in 2008 and was nominated for several Academy Awards.
Set in a Catholic grade school in the Bronx in 1964, “Doubt” tells the story of a nun who believes a priest might have molested one of the school’s students.
But at the end of the show, the audience won’t have a clear answer of who is right and who is wrong.
“You may come out of my play uncertain. You may want to be sure. Look down on that feeling,” “Doubt” playwright John Patrick Shanley writes in the play’s preface. “We’ve got to learn to live with a full measure of uncertainty.”
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students. TWO’s production of “Doubt” stars Anne Welsh as Sister Aloysius Beauvier, the principal of St. Nicholas Church School; Thad Mayhugh as Father Brendan Flynn, a parish priest; Mary-Katherine Weber as Sister James, a young nun and teacher at the school; and April Johnson-Clark as Mrs. Muller, whose 12-year-old son, Donald, is the first black student at the school.
