The Bronx, 1964. Suspicions surface at a parochial school about a charismatic young priest’s interest in a Catholic school’s first and only Black student. Absent hard proof, Sister Aloysius, the school’s starched and self-assured principal, tries to protect the innocent—but is she doing God’s work or is her certitude actually pride?
Although the New York production of "Doubt" came through Washington on its national tour, Studio’s production of John Patrick Shanley’s moral drama is the first revival in a DC professional residential theatre. Set in a Catholic school in 1964, decades before the Church began to publicly grapple with clergy abuse, "Doubt" is as complex as it was 15 years ago, and its questions of how to handle unprovable suspicions—and how the most vulnerable usually bear the brunt of unequal justice—are as timely as ever.
