Doubt has won numerous honors including the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2005 Tony Award for Best Play. In this brilliant and powerful drama, Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students. Doubt is a parable for our time: When should we stand firm in our beliefs? When must we accept a measure of doubt into our thinking, and give someone else the benefit of that doubt? When belief begins to slip, will doubt help us to renew our humanity or make us into a lie?
