Doubt: A Parable

Front Cover
Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2010 - Drama - 130 pages
402 Reviews
Now a major motion picture! Starring Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Amy Adams. Written and directed by John Patrick Shanley from his Pulitzer Prizewinning play. The best new play of the season. That rarity of rarities, an issue-driven play that is un preachy, thought-provoking, and so full of high drama that the audience with which I saw it gasped out loud a half-dozen times at its startling twists and turns. Mr. Shanley deserves the highest possible praise: he doesnt try to talk you into doing anything but thinking-hard-about the gnarly complexity of human behavior. Terry Teach out, The Wall Street Journal.

Review: Doubt

User Review  - Aly Howard - Goodreads

A truly thought provoking play that starts a dialogue of examination of not only religious leaders, but of any authority figure. I enjoyed the subtle wordplay and fully developed characters. On a related note, the film adaptation is one of my favorite play-to-move adaptations. Very well done. Read full review
