Renowned equity actor Judy Rossignuolo-Rice stars as a rigidly conservative nun who is tasked with investigating allegations of misconduct between a beloved and progressive parish priest and one of the students in his care.
John Patrick Shanley delves into the murky shadows of moral certainty, his characters always balancing on the thin line between truth and consequences. "Doubt: A Parable" is a potent drama that will raise questions and answer none, leaving the audience to grapple with the discomfort of their uncertainties.
"Doubt: A Parable" won the Tony Award for best play, the Drama Desk Award for best new play, and the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 2005.
The show co-stars Sarah Sapperstein, Lisa McConnell and Sean Michael Barrett as Father Flynn. The show is directed by Bernard Rice, with lighting design by Pat Henderson and costume design by Broadway World award-winner Patty Halajian. Wendy Kaplan produces for MadKap Productions
For the safety and comfort of guests at the Skokie Theatre, audiences will be limited to 60 out of the 150 seats, and a new, state-of-the art air-filtration system has been installed.
MadKap Productions joins with other area theaters in requiring patrons to show proof of vaccination on arrival and remain masked while inside the building. All Skokie Theatre staff, cast, musicians, ushers and crew are fully vaccinated.
"Doubt: A Parable" is the third show in MadKap Productions 2021-22 subscription series, which opened last year with performances of Stephen Sondheim's "Anyone Can Whistle" and the world-premiere of "The Wind Phone" by Madelyn Sergel. The season concludes in April with the musical murder mystery "Something's Afoot."
