Coastal Stage Productions proudly presents their CSP Theatre Season 2020 opener, DOUBT – A Parable. This Pulitzer Prize & Tony Award winning drama about authority, suspicion, and religion will be presented live onstage, Jan 24 through Feb 2 at Coastal Stage @ AMVETS, 1831 Ribaut Rd., Port Royal.
Set in 1964,Doubt examines the moral uncertainties of the human heart, through the structure and example of the Catholic faith. In this brilliant drama, Sister Aloysius, (Gail Westerfield) a Bronx school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the elder priest Father Flynn (Brooke Pearson) of improper relations with one of her male students. In her zealous quest to prove his guilt, she desperately balances her suspicions on the thin line between truth and consequence. The powerful drama of Doubt is brilliantly balanced by the innocence of Sister James, (Julie Seibold) as she struggles with her observation of the events, and the desperate plight of Mrs. Muller, (Paulette Edwards) the mother of the male student.
Director Luke Cleveland says, “Coastal’s production of Doubt, set in our intimate black-box performance venue,will closely draw the audience to witness the innermost part of the unfolding events, as battle lines are drawn, allegiances formed and motives called into question. Don’t miss this amazing event.”
“Blunt yet subtle, manipulative but full of empathy for all sides, Doubt is a lean, potent drama… passionate, exquisite, important and engrossing.” —NY Newsday.
Directed by Luke Cleveland with assistance by Gigi Pingree.
