Riveting Pulitzer Prize-Winning Drama Opens Soon 

Playhouse 22, East Brunswick’s Community Theater troupe, presents Doubt: A Parable by John Patrick Shanley running January 9 through 18.  The drama is set in a fictional church school in the Bronx in 1964.  When a nun expresses concerns over the behavior of a progressive and beloved priest, explosive allegations are leveled against the priest leaving all in doubt over their faith.   

The original play won various awards for best drama including the prestigious New York Drama Critics’ Circle Best Play in 2005.  A film adaptation featured Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep was recognized with a number of Academy Award Nominations. 

The show is directed by Walter H. Placzek and is part of Playhouse 22’s critically-acclaimed “On the Edge” series.  The series is an opportunity for directors to present lesser-known or smaller works that might not be suited to a full-scale production. The emphasis is on the play and the acting, not costumes, props or special effects. 

Some of the content is for mature audiences and parental guidance is suggested. 

All performances are Friday evenings at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m.

All tickets are $15 and are available online at Playhouse22.org, by calling the Box Office at(732) 254-3939 or at the Box Office window.  Playhouse 22 is conveniently located at the East Brunswick Community Arts Center at 721 Cranbury Road, East Brunswick.
