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
This frantic backstage comedy is cleverly staged to allow you three versions of the same show: Act I is the final rehearsal; Act II is the opening performance from backstage; Act III is a performance weeks later from out front. Every act presents its own set of crazy problems for the actors and hapless director to overcome so that the show can “go on.” As the fighting among the cast members becomes more twisted, everything "on stage’’ begins to unravel.
