WHY: 'Doubt: A Parable' centres around Sisters (Aloysius and James) and Priest (Father Flynn) in a New York convent during the 1960's, and the ensuing power struggle not only between the Father and Sister Aloysius, but even more chilling, himself and one of his young students. A word of warning, if child abuse isn't your bag, maybe give this one a miss.

This is a thought provoking drama, that isn't scared to highlight issues which are still so uncomfortable to talk about today. The acting was superb, and its a great little venue that everyone should experience at least once.

Plus, any play that's been adapted into a movie with Meryl Streep in it has to be good, right?
