NTC is pleased to announce the first production in its 2015 season will be ‘Doubt: A Parable’ by John Patrick Stanley.
‘Doubt’ (winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony for Best New Play), is set during the 1960’s at a Catholic school in the Bronx. The school’s long standing and deeply conservative Principal, Sister Aloysius, has fears of misconduct by the recently appointed Father Flynn, a progressive and personable parish priest. With the young and naive Sister James by her side, Sister Aloysius seeks out the truth on whether Father Flynn has preyed on the school’s first African-American student. It’s a strong play that deals with how far we go to confirm our suspicions when the power of those higher up can limit our reach.
‘Doubt’, directed by John Wood and assisted by Sally Davies, will run from 31st January to 14th February 2015.
NTC is holding auditions for the major three roles of the production (the ages listed are a guide only):
– Sister Aloysius (50-60). The stern and deeply conservative school principal with unwavering convictions.
– Father Flynn (30-40). The new priest. Popular with parishioners, he wishes to change the negative outlook of the church and be more welcoming to the public.
– Sister James (20-30). A young teacher whose inexperience and naivety make her vulnerable to being swayed by those around her.
Auditions will be held at NTC on 13th and 14th of October from 6-9pm, with each auditionee allocated 15 minutes.
Those wishing to apply for an audition package, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a preferred rehearsal date and time.
Editor’s note: details of the new season will be revealed soon – the launch is on in late October!
