Quotes & Highlights

“An inspired study in moral uncertainty with the compellingly certain structure of an old-fashioned detective drama.” —New York Times


What do you do when you’re not sure? In a Bronx Catholic school during the 1960s, a deeply principled nun suspects a popular new priest of improper conduct. Her allegations could destroy lives. Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, Doubt is one of the most exciting and popular plays in recent Broadway history. 

Olney’s production of Doubt will be the first resident version in the DC area.

By John Patrick Shanley (Moonstruck, Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, Four Dogs and a Bone)

Directed by John Going

Featuring Brigid Cleary as Sister Aloysius, James Denvil as Father Flynn, Patricia Hurley as Sister James and Deidra LaWan Starnes as Mrs. Muller
