The news out of Philadelphia about the decade-spanning sexual abuse and coverup in the Catholic Church hadn’t been released when Doubt was chosen to be part of the Open Book season, but it proves to have been a timely choice. In the play Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of impropriety. What follows is an engaging examination of the grey areas between suspicion, certainty and doubt.
