Theater-goers Certain to Enjoy “Doubt – A Parable” in January/February
The Platte Valley Players, Brighton’s nationally award-winning community theater, presents “Doubt – A Parable” for two consecutive weekends, Friday and Saturday January 27-28 and February 3-4 at the Armory for the Performing Arts in Brighton, Colorado. Show times are 7:30 pm each night with a matinee at 2:00 pm each Saturday.
This Tony Award Winning and Pulitzer Prize Winning play by John Patrick Shanley is set in a Bronx Catholic school in 1964, where conservative, imposing school principal Sister Aloysius accuses progressive, charismatic Father Flynn of becoming too close to a boy in his class. She initiates a campaign to have him relieved of his duties, armed only with her own suspicion and few circumstantial specifics, while enlisting the help of a young, subordinate nun and the boy’s mother. This taut, engaging play balances humor with complicated human issues, leaving the audience to wonder, “What do you do when you’re not sure?”
“Anyone who is a fan of theatrical drama should see this play. With only four characters, the writing really shines as the story unfolds from suspicion to accusation to confrontation”, said Kelly Van Osbree, Artistic Director of the Platte Valley Players and Director of Doubt – A Parable. “We have four wonderful actors who love these characters and will give the audience plenty to think about by the end of the performance. It’s going to be terrific!”
Tickets for “Doubt – A Parable” are available through the Platte Valley Players website at www.plattevalleyplayers.org. Tickets are $20 for Adults in advance and $25 at the door. Seniors and Students are $18 in advance and $23 at the door.
