Doubt: A Parable
by JOHN PATRICK SHANLEY
Directed by DINO DIMITRIADIS
10 May - 3 June
Presented in association with Apocalypse Theatre Company.
Amidst the turbulence of the 1960s, Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal and stern Catholic nun, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students. An accusation sets the stage for a powerful clash of authority, tradition, responsibility and faith.
Where do you draw the line between belief and suspicion? Between scandal and moral certainty. And when does the battle for truth turn into a witch hunt?
Damian de Montemas

"It’s hard to imagine a better or more enthralling production."
Diana Simmonds - Stagenoise
"Director Dino Dimitriadis’ production is a carefully governed, emotionally restrained reading that dials up tension almost imperceptibly. It is flawlessly cast. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"
Jason Blake - TimeOut Sydney
"Belinda Giblin, an actor who regularly crafts larger-than-life characters with an unshakeable steeliness, is astonishing in the new Sydney production at the Old Fitz Theatre."
Ben Neutze - DailyReview
"Performed with great detail by an impassioned cast of four, we are offered a marvellous intensity of interplay between characters that could only emerge from exhaustive study and immersion into the text."
