“Doubt”, Pulitzer Prize winning play
Watch ‘Doubt’, a Pulitzer-prize winning play
William Patrick Shanley’s Pulitzer Prize winning play ‘Doubt’ has much relevance to the Indian environment. Mithran Devanesan who wanted to adapt the play for the Indian stage sought the assistance of author and playwright, Anushka Ravishankar. But Mithran passed away before the play was staged. The Madras Players, in association with Boardwalkers, were determined to realise Mithran’s last dream. Michael Muthu took up the director’s mantle, and the play is being offered as a tribute to Mithran, who strode the Chennai stage as a colossus, showcasing some of the most memorable productions over many years.
The play deals with the conflict within a parish and its associated school, a stand-off between the nun who is the school principal and the parish priest. Is anything ever black and white, or is life full of shades of grey? Is certainty possible at all times, or does doubt envelop us more often than not? The play examines this in the conflict that unfolds.
The play features P.C. Ramakrishna, Indrani Krishnaier, Nikhila Kesavan and Shaan Katari Libby.
It will be staged at 7.15 p.m. at the Sivagami Pethachi Hall, Luz Church Road , Mylapore on November 26, 27 and 28.
