Doubt is a spellbinding play about the nature of faith. As the character Father Flynn says in the opening speech - a sermon - 'What do you do when you're not sure?' Doubt is set in a Bronx Catholic school in 1964. An imperious older nun suspects a popular young priest of inappropriate behavior with a student. Armed with nothing more than a resolute belief in her suspicion and a few circumstantial details, she instigates a relentless campaign to remove the priest, enlisting the help of a subordinate nun and the child's tormented mother. The simple, yet ever-shifting plot leaves all four characters and the audience wondering whether they were justified in their thoughts, motives and actions. Are you sure? Doubt is a serious drama about complicated human and social issues, it's also very engaging and highly entertaining. This is a play that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats and only concludes with a conversation in the bar afterwards.
