Delray Beach Playhouse presents DOUBT

The Delray Beach Playhouse is bringing a measure of drama to the stage when John Patrick Shanley’s Pultizer Prize and Tony Award-winning play Doubt premieres on May 24. Set in the Bronx in 1964, Doubt follows three faculty members at St. Nicholas Catholic School. Sister Aloysius, the school’s feared and indomitable head mistress, has a suspicion that the fun-loving and laid back Father Flynn’s intentions with a young male student are not just of a spiritual nature. Sister Aloysius’ doubt leads her on an inquisitorial investigation, enlisting the help of the timid teacher Sister James to uncover the truth.

  • Doubt will run from May 24 to June 8.
  • Showtimes are as follows: Thursday and Friday, 8 p.m.; Saturday, 2 and 8 p.m.; Sunday, 2 p.m.
  • Tickets cost $30.

Delray Beach Playhouse - Doubt - live theater, drama

Though Doubt will put a bow on the Delray Beach Playhouse’s 2013-14 main-stage season, the theatrical offerings are far from over this summer:

On May 29 at 2 p.m., the Words…Alive! staged-reading program will present “Three Daughters.” The adaptation of Letty Cottin Pogrebin novel of the same name follows three sisters as they struggle with sisterly angst and family secrets.

  • Tickets cost $25.

On June 2-4 and 9-11, the theater company’s Musical Memories 2013-14 season comes to a close with “Make Someone Happy,” a retrospective of the songs by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. The duo’s lyrics are part of the American musical canon, with songs like “Just in Time,” “A Little Bit in Love,” “Make Someone Happy,” “New York, New York,” “The Wrong-Note Rag,” “Long Before I Knew You” and “The Party’s Over” part of their portfolio.
