Center Stage Theatre will close out its 13 season with John Patrick Shanley’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play, Doubt, directed by Gary Scarpa. The production will run from April 13 through April 29 at the Shelton theater.
Set in 1964 as great changes are occurring in the Catholic Church, Doubt tells the story of Father Flynn, a young, popular, progressive priest who is accused of sexual misconduct with an eighth grade boy by Sister Aloysius, the school principal. Sister Aloysius, with only a shred of evidence, builds her case against Father Flynn mainly on a "feeling" she has about him and a conviction to keep children safe from predators. In her mission to take the young priest down, great drama and suspense ensues!
