Words - Lucy Inch Photos - Simon Fitzpatrick.
WHAT: Doubt: A Parable
WHEN: 13 - 22 August, 2015. Booking times HERE!
WHERE: Chapel off Chapel, 12 Little Chapel Street, Prahran.
WHO: Directed by Stephen Wheat (Avenue Q) Cast: Penny Larkins (NED The Musical), Daniel Humphris (Flower Children), Tariro Mavondo (Jumpy) and Krista Thomson.
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.
