Doubt, A Parable, Coming to Anacostia Arts Center June 1-25

On June 1, 2017, SeeNoSun OnStage will open a four week run of Doubt, A Parable, John Patrick Shanley’s controversial Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning drama. The play examines the Catholic Church abuse scandal while trying to answer the question, “What do you do when you’re not sure?
 
The story takes place at a Bronx, New York Catholic School in 1964. Sister Aloysius, the school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects a young, progressive priest, Father Flynn, of improper relations with the school’s first black male student.  This potent drama raises questions and answers none, leaving the audience to grapple with the discomfort of their own uncertainty. In the end, all that remains is doubt.
 
SeeNoSun’s production of Doubt, A Parable features Wendy Wilmer (Sister Aloysius), Evan Crump (Father Flynn), Emily Gilson (Sister James) and Mary Miller (Mrs. Muller).
 
SeeNoSun OnStage will produce Doubt, A Parable at the Anacostia Arts Center, 1231 Good Hope Rd. SE, Washington, DC 20020, June 1st through June 25th (Thursdays – Sundays) at 8:00 PM. Tickets are available for $25 at SeeNoSun.org.
 
AUDIENCE WARNING: Doubt, A Parable is recommended for mature audiences only.
