In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama set in the Bronx in 1964, Sister Aloysius, the principal of a Catholic school in the borough, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects that young newcomer Father Flynn has sexually abused the school's only black student. As she wrestles with her doubts, she questions an idealistic young nun and the mother of the alleged victim, perhaps changing them forever.

This gripping drama about suspicion, scandal and the elusiveness of moral certainty stars Karen MacDonald. Learn More

Very funny play with many laugh-out-loud moments and injokes, especially for fans of Restoration playwrights. The characters are vivid, intense, utterly believable and captivating.

A highly enjoyable evening out!
