Salt Lake City, UT – John Patrick Shanley has said that he didn't want to write an issue play. His Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Doubt centers around a nun who suspects the parish priest of having an inappropriate relationship with one of her young students. But even though the setting is ripped from the headlines, Shanley's "parable" as he calls it, goes deeper. Pioneer Theatre Company opened Doubt this past weekend, and Monday, Doug talks to Shanley, director Martin Platt and cast members about the play, and about questions of faith, trust and moral uncertainty.
Pioneer Theatre Company's production of Doubt runs through November 17th. For tickets and information, click here, or call 581-6961.
