Rumors are everywhere—and whether true or not, can do irreversable damage. John Patrick Shanley’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Doubt focuses on the conflict between a novice who suspects a priest is becoming too close to one of the boys at the fictional St. Nicholas Catholic school in the Bronx in 1964, that parish priest and the school’s rigid nun/principal (perhaps you caught the 2008 film in which both Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman epically played the lead roles). The nuns’ and the boy’s mother’s doubts as to what really happened shape the drama in this highly polarized tale.
