About the Play
Writers Theatre is thrilled to bring audiences this riveting, Pulitzer Prize-winning play about authority, suspicion, ambiguity and religion in an exciting, site-specific production staged in the library of the Glencoe Union Church.
The production—directed by William Brown—will allow the audience to be a fly on the church wall, observing as battle lines are drawn, allegiances formed and motives called into question.
"I find John Patrick Shanley's play Doubt to be, at its core, a thriller. And by "thriller" I mean something that we are excited by, but that haunts us and scares us. In this case, we are haunted by uncertainty and afraid of discovering the truth. As I look toward the opportunity to put this show together in a darkened church, in collaboration with the extraordinary cast we have assembled, I certainly could not be more excited."
