“Passionate and engrossing,” Grasse River Players and Clarkson Theatre Company present, Doubt, A Parable November 19th & 20th.
Grasse River Players, in partnership with the Clarkson Theatre Company, present the controversial drama Doubt, A Parable, by John Patrick Shanley, November 19th & 20th, at 8pm, at the Downtown Snell Hall Theatre, located at 41 Elm Street, Potsdam. This Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play is directed by Jennifer deCoste, and features the local dramatic talent of North Country residents Dorothy Mallam, as Sister Aloysius; Todd Moe, as Father Flynn; Julia Ferreri, as Sister James; and Dominique Paul, as Mrs. Muller. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $8.00 and are general admission.
Set in 1964, Doubt: A Parable chronicles the struggle of Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal, in her pursuit of truth and justice regarding a young Father Flynn and the suspicious relationship he has formed with one of his pupils. “Blunt yet subtle, manipulative but full of empathy for all sides, the play is set in 1964 but could not be more timely. In just ninety fast-moving minutes, Shanley creates four blazingly individual people. Doubt: A Parable is a lean, potent drama…passionate, exquisite, important, and engrossing.”—New York Newsday.
