“Doubt can be a bond as powerful and sustaining as certainty. When you are lost, you are not alone”, says father Flynn in his sermon that opens the performance.

John Patrick Shanley's play received the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award in 2005. It was screened in 2008, directed by the author, with an exceptional cast: Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams and Viola Davis, receiving several Oscar nominations.

Father Flynn and Sister Aloysius, the principal of the St. Nicholas Catholic Parish School in a New York City neighborhood, come into conflict when Sister James notices and reports some evidence of alleged sexual abuse committed by the priest over a black pupil.

Doubt is never replaced by certainty, which makes the performance an exciting case study of doubt. Doubt as a separation from certainty, from faith, in order to operate a necessary reconnection to the present, to the so changing reality of human life.
