Doubt graphic“DOUBT”
presented by the University of Northern Iowa Theater Department

April 19, at 7 pm
$5 for adults, children up to 18 admitted free

Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play, Doubt, by John Patrick Shanley, continues to resonate in our present world.

When should we trust? Whom should we trust? Why must we trust? Must we live in a world of doubt, suspicion and fear? Set in a parochial school in 1964, Doubt focuses on the charismatic Father Flynn and his interest in a young student, a naïve young nun and the skeptical nature of the school’s principal, Sister Aloysius. Doubt is a tense, dramatic examination of the potential danger of blind trust and the roles of men vs. women, faith vs. doubt, and tradition vs. change. There will also be an optional talkback with performers after the play.

The performance is open to the public. Tickets are $5 for adults, and free for children 18 and younger. Seating is limited, so contact the Orpheum Theater to reserve yours.

The Orpheum Ticket Office is at 220 E. Main St., Marshalltown; phone 641-844-5921.
