Doubt can be a bond as powerful and sustaining as certainty

St Nicholas Catholic School, New York, 1964. Head nun and Principal, Sister Aloysius Beauvier, welcomes Donald Muller, the first black child ever to attend the school. But when Father Flynn seems to be having an intimate relationship with the boy, her faith is tested to its limits.

Astounding audiences at the Manhattan Theatre Club before transferring to Broadway, John Patrick Shanley's dark, tightly written play won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, with its later film adaptation receiving nominations at the Golden Globes, BAFTAs, and Academy Awards.

Oxford Theatre Guild – one of Oxfordshire’s most vibrant, and longest running, non-professional companies – is delighted to bring this atmospheric and powerful production to The Old Fire Station. Doubt: A Parable is a suspense-filled exploration of intolerance, faith, and the abuse of authority, and asks you: do you really know what you think you know?

Ages 14+

90 minutes with no interval.
