Doubt: A Parable

OCCC
Feb. 28

On stage in the Bruce Owen Theater on the campus of Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC), the award-winning Montana Repertory Theatre will present John Patrick Shanley’s Doubt, Tues., Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. Winner of a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award, Doubt tackles faith, trust, dishonesty, friendship and the church with a clever and insightful touch.

Playwriting on the highest level, Doubt was made into a movie in 2008 starring Glenn Close and Philip Seymour Hoffman, and provides that rare evening of theatre that thoroughly entertains and is altogether captivating emotionally, psychologically, and intellectually.

Doubt: A Parable began its off-Broadway run in November 2004 and went on to Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theatre the following March. Shanley adapted his play for the screen, and in 2008, the film, directed by Shanley and starring Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman, was released to critical acclaim. The movie’s many awards included an Academy Award for best adapted screenplay and a Golden Globe for best screenplay.

Montana Repertory Theatre was established as a professional touring company in 1967, and specializes in the great stories of our world to enlighten, develop, and celebrate the human spirit in an ever-expanding community. Montana Repertory Theatre often specializes in classic American dramas like Death of a Salesman or A Streetcar Named Desire; and comedies with the likes of Neil Simon (Lost in Yonkers) or Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor).
