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

Parable will be performed in the Phoenix Theatre
