This irreverent and poignant comedy was inspired by popular playwright Jeffrey Hatcher's memories of a childhood etiquette class he was forced to endure at the tender age of 10. His demanding instructor, Mrs. Mannerly, rules with a white-gloved iron fist and has yet to see a single student achieve a perfect score in her class over the course of a 36-year-long career. But once young Jeffrey uncovers his teacher's secret past, he sets out to be the first to make that top grade. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“Well-written roles that crackle with intelligence and rhythm.” —The New Yorker
“…passionate, exquisite, important and engrossing." —NY Newsday
“A beautifully balanced drama. Shanley is a writer working at the top of his craft, making the most of a muted but evocative palette in the pursuit of truth’s shadows. Here, for the first time in a long time, is a play that is about something.” —Chicago Tribune

Doubt was the winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award and Drama Desk Award.
Sister Aloysius, a Bronx Catholic school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of having improper relations with one of the male students.
Set in 1964, the play follows Sister Aloysius, who, with little more than a resolute belief in her suspicion and a few circumstantial details, instigates a relentless campaign to remove the priest, enlisting the help of a subordinate nun and the child’s tormented mother in this brilliant and powerful drama.
