Doubt: A Parable, a play by John Patrick Shanley, is set in the fictional St. Nicholas Church School, in the Bronx, during the fall of 1964. The school's rigidly conservative principal, Sister Aloysius, harbors a deep mistrust toward her students, clergymen, and society in general. She enlists naïve and impressionable Sister James to confirm her suspicions about the new parish priest, Father Flynn, believing that he is engaging in sexual misconduct with a student. With no actual proof that Father Flynn is or is not innocent, the audience is left with its own doubt.
SISTER ALOYSIUS: Woman, fifties/sixties. Head nun and principal of St Nicholas School.
FATHER FLYNN: Man, Late thirties to early fifties. A new priest. Articulate and personable.
SISTER JAMES: Woman, twenties. A young nun. An enthusiastic but inexperienced teacher.
MRS.MULLER: African-American woman, mid-thirties to mid-forties. The mother of Donald Muller.
