Doubt, the Award-Winning Drama From Kentwood Players
Westchester Playhouse (Los Angeles, CA)
Set at a Bronx Catholic school in 1964, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play centers on a strict headmistress who comes to suspect a popular and progressive new priest of sexually abusing a student. At first she barrels ahead in her suspicions seemingly with absolute certainty. But as she questions an idealistic young nun and the mother of the alleged victim, the cracks in her resolve appear and her doubts begin to assert themselves. This powerful play presents deep questions about the nature of faith, certainty and doubt that will provide food for thought well after the curtain descends. After Saturday evening performances, audiences are invited to chew over these topics with the cast of the play in a weekly Q&A session.
