Great intimate setting. Wonderful staging and lighting. The acting was good but not great. The Boston(?)/Irish accents were a little distracting.

Quotes & Highlights

“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 _
“An eloquent and provocative investigation of truth and consequences. A gripping mystery, tightly written.” —Time Out NY

Description

At a Bronx Catholic school in the 1960s, principal Sister Aloysius is suspicious of young Father Flynn’s relationship with one of his male students. She enlists the help of another teacher, Sister James, to prove Father Flynn’s suspected impropriety. Is it possible to do so beyond a shadow of a doubt? Find out in T. Schreiber Studio and Theatre’s revival of John Patrick Shanley’s powerful drama, winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award.

About the Ticket Supplier: T. Schreiber Studio

The T. Schreiber Studio began in 1969 with Terry Schreiber teaching classes twice a week to twelve actors in a converted loft on the Upper East Side of New York City. Enrollment increased and the group began mounting productions in what were the early beginnings of New York City’s Off-Off Broadway movement and building its reputation of high quality productions and performances. The studio continued to grow, adding more faculty, more actors, and more plays and in the mid 70’s, drama critic Walter Kerr’s glowing review in the New York Times of Schreiber’s production of The Trip Back Down, brought the Studio much attention and packed houses. The Trip Back Down then moved to Broadway and John Cullum (Northern Exposure) was signed to do the lead. Throughout the 1980’s and into the 90’s the T. Schreiber Studio continued to produce good actors and good theater, adding Betty Buckley to its prestigious faculty and residing at 83 East Fourth Street, the burgeoning street of Off-Off Broadway. During that time Terry Schreiber continued his own directing career with two more Broadway shows: Devour the Snow and K-2, and numerous regional theater productions providing more casting opportunities for studio actors.

In 1996 the Studio moved to its current, renovated multi-use space on the 7th floor of 151 West 26th Street in New York’s lively Chelsea neighborhood. Classes and productions run continuously throughout the year.
