Doubt, A Parable

Doubt, A Parable

Written by John Patrick Shanley

Directed by Hugo Trebels

The creative team behind last years’ in the round and stripped back production of ‘Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf’ at The Stables Theatre, come together again to present Doubt, A Parable. Helmed by director Hugo Trebels and assisted by Jamie Seaton, Doubt, A Parable promises to be another exciting and thought provoking evening at the theatre. 

Times are changing, to the chagrin of principal Sister Aloysius. However, when an unconscionable accusation is made against the Father, Sister Aloysius realises that the only way to get justice is to create it herself. And as for the truth of the matter? As Father Flynn says, “Doubt can be a bond as powerful and sustaining as certainty.”

John Patrick Shanley’s play delves into the murky shadows of moral certainty, his characters always balancing on the thin line between truth and its consequences. Doubt: A Parable is an exquisite, potent drama that will raise questions and answer none, leaving the audience to grapple with the discomfort of their uncertainties..

Did he or didn’t he? In an age of ‘Cancel Culture’, when unfounded gossip and innuendo can destroy lives and reputations, how can we condemn without certainty?
