The Hampton University Players and Company proudly present “Doubt” by John Patrick Shanley. This intriguing, dark drama will be held Dec. 2-5 in Armstrong Hall’s Little Theater at HU. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 8 p.m.; Sunday matinee opens at 3 p.m. Tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for senior citizens, children and students, and free admission for HU students.

Set in 1964, charismatic priest Father Flynn is trying to upend the strict customs at St. Nicolas Catholic School in the Bronx, which have long been fiercely guarded by Sister Aloysius Beauvier, the strict principal. When a younger nun, Sister James, alleges an inappropriate relationship between Father Flynn and a younger student has developed, a firestorm of attacks begins. Are we really innocent until proven guilty? Is the court of public opinion stronger than the court of law? “Doubt” will arrest your fears, your faith and your suspicions. Even in a world of faith, we all have doubt.

Directed by Bresean Jenkins, assistant professor of theater at HU, the cast of “Doubt” features Jade Banks, Shaun Harvell, Elicia McCray, Raven Parker, Winston Williams, and Mychole Willis. Jenkins will also serve as costume designer. Assistant Professor of Speech and Theater C. Perry Otto will head scenic and light design.

For ticket information, please contact the HU Box Office at (757) 5236 or (757) 727-5402.
