You are here:  Welcome to My Northwestern  

There is a play on campus this weekend I think you'll want to see.

Actors are student Denise Cowherd, RD of Steggie Hannah McBride, and Profs Robert Hubbard and Karen Barker.  

The play is Doubt by John Patrick Shanley.

September 4 and 5 in the DeWitt Theatre Arts Center

7:30 p.m. (90 minutes long)

$5 admission fee (Less than a movie!)

Very briefly, this is a play about the principal of a Catholic school, Sister Aloysius, who takes matters into her own hands when she suspects Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students.  The doubt of the title surely speaks to the doubt about the events leading up to her suspicions.  But here are some of the other issues of the play:

Race.  It is 1964, and it is the first African American student ever to attend the school that Father Flynn is suspected of having the improper relationship with.

Gender.  Sister Aloysius feels powerless in a world clearly controlled by men.

Faith.  Is there room for doubt within faith or is absolute certainty a requirement?

In his preface to the play, Shanley says this:  "The beginning of change is the moment of Doubt.  It is that crucial moment when I renew my humanity or become a lie."

Please come and renew your humanity with us.
