  Doubt at Studio Theatre


Studio Theatre
1501 14th St. NW Washington

The Bronx, 1964. Suspicions surface at a parochial school about a charismatic young priest's interest in a Catholic school's first and only Black student. Absent hard proof, Sister Aloysius, the school's starched and self-assured principal, tries to protect the innocent - but is she doing God's work or is her certitude actually pride? Anchored by Studio mainstay Sarah Marshall, Doubt is John Patrick Shanley's masterpiece about faith, ambiguity, and the price of moral conviction.

Washington Post - Recommended

"...But if "Doubt" once came across most forthrightly as a debate play blessed by Shanley's gift for sober and elegant disputation, it now seems a drama not so much about gray areas as about the all-too-apparent truth. For it's hard at this late date not to set aside the doubt in "Doubt" and commune entirely with the nun who's confronted by an institution that has betrayed its charges, and her."

"...Most remarkable about Doubt is that despite the story being one we hear so frequently; it nevertheless remains a gripping intellectual drama. That's a credit to Shanley who has layered the play with many internal conflicts and struggles, making the play's climax seem all the more provocative."

"...Now Studio Theatre is offering Doubt in a compelling production that shows off its significant central arguments - about faith, tradition, ambiguity, suspicion, and the power of love, to name just a few."

"...Director Matt Torney has taken a somewhat unconventional approach to three of the characters, but his choices (and theirs) make sense. Sister James is usually played as a naïf, and generally by an actor who presents in her early or mid-twenties, but Pedlow gives us a more mature nun, consistent with her skill as a teacher. Pedlow is terrific, incidentally, as a character who struggles with the conflict between her love for the change Father Flynn represents and her obligations to a twelve-year-old boy who might be being sodomized."
