Timely and impactful. “Doubt” is a story that all the churched and then everyone else should know. For far too many innocent have lived it without the defense of morally perceptive and courageous nuns or the reality of fiction. John Patrick Stanley demonstrates the intricacy of real characters and a terribly real situation with writing so clean you forget it’s there. This play is an example of purity for playwrights and all our callous hearts. ( )

Much better than the film. ( )

“Ballpoints make them press down, and when they press down, they wrote like monkeys.” ( )

This was an incredible play. An intimate character study of Sister James, Sister Aloysius, Father Flynn, and Donald (even though the boy is only mentioned in the play and never seen.) It is a parable, through and through, and an impressive one at that. The introduction is key to the understanding of it and I truly think that this is one of the finest short, modern plays that I have read in quite some time.

A great read: recommended. 5 stars! ( )
