Church Hill Theatre
Church Hill, Maryland – August, 2017

Director Michael Whitehill has announced the cast for Doubt, a Parable, which is opening at Church Hill Theatre on September 8, 2017 and running for three weekends. The drama, by John Patrick Shanley, won both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play in 2005, and has earned its outstanding reputation as a wonderful challenge for actors and a stimulating theatrical experience for audiences around the world.

Set in a Bronx parochial school in the 1960s, the play addresses complex social issues and multiple uncertainties. The audience is immediately engaged in weighing conflicting claims, moral choices and the elusive search for “truth.” By the time the curtain falls, doubt still remains as a prod for reflection. For this reason, each performance at Church Hill Theatre will be followed by an open discussion between the audience and the production members in an attempt to promote thoughtful conversation regarding the subject matter.

In the Church Hill production, Barbara Bedell will play the role of Mrs. Muller, whose son Donald, the school’s first African-American student, may have been molested by Father Flynn, a beloved parish priest. Kendall Davis portrays Sister James, a young and impressionable nun who must deal with both Father Flynn and Sister Aloysius Beauvier, a sternly conservative member of the Sisters of Charity. John Haas takes the role of Father Brendan Flynn, who vigorously protests his innocence. Sister Aloysius, initially sure of her facts and her beliefs, is played by Kathy Jones.

The production team will include Producer Sylvia Maloney, Assistant to the Director Mary Zober, Stage Manager/Photographer Steve Atkinson, Scenarist Brian Draper, Light Designer Doug Kaufmann, Light & Sound crew members Laura Crabtree and Matt Grande, and Dramaturgs Christopher Wallace and Patrick Fee.

Doubt, a Parable will open at Church Hill Theatre on September 8, 2017 and runs through September 24, with performances on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 pm and Sunday afternoons at 2 pm.
