Doubt: A Parable

  • Mar 16, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

When will we meet? The show begins at 7:30pm, and doors open at 7pm. I will be in the lobby at 7pm wearing a BRIGHT pink sweater, so you should have no trouble finding me. Also, see the separate events set up here on the site for dinner before the show.

How do you get your tickets? When you arrive at the theater, tell them you're with Stacy's Meetup.

What are we seeing? Doubt, presented by Cherry Creek Theater. You can read more about the theater by clicking here, and you can read more about the play by clicking here.

Where is the theater? The company performs in the Shaver-Ramsey Carpet Gallery, and the address I have above is correct. They use wooden or folding chairs, and the stage is the center of the room. Actors enter and exit using paths between the folding chairs. This is true local theater! The address can also be found by clicking here.

Where can I park? There are many pay lots around Cherry Creek, but there is also plenty of street parking. Be sure to read all signs and comply with parking restrictions, meters, etc.

Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer and Tony Award! In this brilliant and powerful drama, set in 1964, Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students.

One of our awesome group members works for Cherry Creek Theater and has arranged a talk-back with the cast after the show. Please plan to stay for it! Doubt is definitely a piece that merits discussion.

Our group's ground rules, including the refund/cancellation policy, can be found by clicking here. Be sure not to purchase a ticket unless you have read and agree to adhere to those terms. Thank you!

Let's get out of the house, meet some great people, and have fun

    It was a very nice evening. I love the small intimate venues.

    Exceptional. I was transfixed and moved by the top notch portrayal of this multifaceted complex human condition: when action becomes suspended between certainty and imagination. Institutions of all kinds rigorously maintain dark narrow pathways to insure that exposure of questionable and clandestine agendas is at best a dangerous endeavor. Even for the individual, when faced with investigating and exposing suspicion of any unacceptable wrong doing - paralysis can set in. F.E.A.R is never a friend when doing the right thing on behalf of one's own values or the helpless and victimized by challenging the Sacred Status Quo. If the crusader is wrong.... apologies are in order. If the inquiry is derailed - controls for any suspected on-going and perhaps irreparable damage are suspended. What to do? Oh my- What to do?
    KUDOS to Stacy who knows how to sniff out theatrical GEMS and then generously invites a whole gang of us to share the profound experience.

    Doubt is a compelling story, and Cherry Creek did a wonderful job with it. I thought the theme of the talk back (conviction vs. doubt) was interesting - after seeing the movie, I went into the play with a pretty strong conviction that Father Flynn was guilty... and I think the doubt Sister Aloysius feels at the end is in relation to the church itself (its power structure and her place within that power structure), not her personal convictions about Flynn. That being said, the play is so well written that it leaves you questioning your own conclusions, which is obviously the playwright's intent. All in all, great play, great group - thanks for coming everyone.

      I agree Stacy. It was only in the closing lines that I understood the title. She went to so much trouble and risk, to stand up to Father Flynn and the end result was he got a promotion. Her efforts to stop his abuse backfired.

    Totally enjoyed the performance and loved the venue! All such convincing performers - did you notice Sister James actually shed a tear in the last g garden scene?

    Just a comment on Doubt, a Parable,
    I loved the play, but not the venue.The acting was excellent and the principal was very believable.

    Exceptional acting. This gave me alot to think about. What is doubt or conviction??

    First rate theater! Excellent performances. Each actor brought something unique. Thoughtful story, a premise that forces us to examine our own actions (or failure to take action). Very nice dinner at Cucina Colore. Thanks Stacey and Trish.

    Hi everyone! The show starts at 7:30, so I'll be in the lobby by 7pm to greet everyone. I will be wearing a BRIGHT pink sweater, so you should have no trouble finding me. Please remember that the theater has arranged a talk back for us after the show! Please try and stay to ask the cast all your burning questions about the performance. :) Other than that, any questions you have should be answered in the event description above. If not, let me know. Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday! Thanks for coming out to support local theater.

    I have set up two separate Meetup events for dinner. Please go back to the main page and RSVP for the restaurant of your choice. Debbie is hosting dinner at True Food, and Trish is hosting dinner at Cucina Colore. I have been to both of these restaurants, and both are wonderful. Please be sure to thank the people who have set up dinner for us!

    I will say no for now because in March the weather can be bad and I hate to drive in the snow especially at night. Can't wait until the Spring so that I don't have to worry about that. Hopefully there will be good plays then too.
