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. The 2008 film adaptation, starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Viola Davis and Philip Seymour Hoffman, earned Oscar nominations for all four actors. This gripping drama about suspicion, scandal and the elusiveness of moral certainty stars Karen MacDonald. Learn More
“We’re thrilled to premiere another Boston playwright this year,” said Artistic Director James Peter Sotis. “After our enormous success with last year’s premiere of Bea Wissel’s IRNEnominated Burning the Barn, we are delighted to showcase a new local playwright again this summer. We first recognized Zach’s creativity when he performed as Mairtin Hanlon in VTG’s 2009 production of Martin McDonagh’s A Skull in Connemara and we’re glad to have helped him develop this play. His sharp focus on wit and wordplay really highlights the plays themes of honor, trust, and communication.”
