Theatre program presenting “Doubt: A Parable” Oct. 22-25
The Department of Music, Theatre and Dance will present John Patrick Shanley’s thought-provoking play “Doubt: A Parable” this weekend at the Casino Theatre. Directed by associate professor Reggie Phoenix, performances will be given at 8 p.m. Oct. 22-24 and 2 p.m. Oct. 24-25.
In “Doubt,” Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students.
“I decided to do ‘Doubt’ because it’s such a timely story that addresses an issue that has been going on for decades, and there’s still no end in sight to it,” Phoenix said. “I think it’s important that college students know about this story … It’s important that we continue to tell this story, and it’s crucial that the story doesn’t die until this greater issue is resolved.”
The cast includes Alexandra D’Agostino ’17 as Sister Aloysius Beauvier, Hunter Nicholson ’16 as Father Brendan Flynn, Sofia Talbot ’17 as Sister James and Racquel Jean-Louis ’17 as Mrs. Muller.
