Columbia, Ky. -- The Lindsey Wilson College Theatre Program presents a blackbox production of John Patrick Shanley's Doubt: A Parable

Doubt: A Parable  is a 2004 play by John Patrick Shanley. The play won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play.  The play was turned into an Academy Award-nominated film starring Philip Seymour Hoffman as Father Flynn and Meryl Streep as Sister Aloysius. 

This Pulitzer Prize winning drama leaves the audience debating about the morality and possible sins of its main characters. Set in a Bronx Catholic school, this play pits two rivals against one another, Sister Aloysius and Father Flynn. Sister Aloysius is the strict nun/educator who resents the patriarchy within Catholicism. Father Flynn is a friendly, easy-going priest who becomes suspected of an "inappropriate relationship". 

"I never expected to get a role like this since I was brand new to the program," said Hannah Brown, a freshman who plays Sister James, "Not only did I get a great role but I made new friends. Sister James is sort of like me in that we don't want to believe there is evil in the world but deep down we know there is." 

Because of the intimate nature of the play, Doubt: A Parable will be performed in the Phoenix Theatre (Blackbox) in VP Henry Auditorium. Due to limited seating, reservations are strongly recommended. 

Doubt: A Parable will be performed November 2-4 at 7 p.m. and November 6 at 2 p.m. in V.P. Henry Auditorium. All times are Central Standard Time. For ticket information - including group specials - contact Robert Brock at or 270-590-4803.
