Three actresses tackle both plays in an explosive evening of unforgettable drama, performed together for the first time.
Doubt: The Bronx. 1964. A Catholic school principal takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the beloved parish priest is guilty of improper conduct with a male student.
Agnes of God: Upstate New York. 1984. A court-ordered psychiatrist battles with a Mother Superior when she attempts to discover the truth concerning a young novitiate who is accused of an unimaginable crime.
The Catholic Repertory features Kate Skinner (Sister Aloysius/Mother Miriam Ruth); ATC Ensemble Member Sadieh Rifai (Sister James/Sister Agnes); Penelope Walker (Mrs. Muller/Doctor Livingstone); and Lance Baker as Father Flynn.
The creative team for The Catholic Repertory includes Scott Davis (Scenic Designer), Jesse Klug (Lighting Designer), Sally Dolembo (Costume Designer), and Andre Pluess (Sound Designer). Ashley Nguyen is the Properties Master and Katie Klemme is the Stage Manager.
