 October 1-4, 2008
Set in a Catholic school in 1964, this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama appears at first to be the story of the suspicion cast on a priest’s behavior, but it is less about scandal than the question of moral certainty.  Sister Aloysius, a conservative school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of improper relations with a male student.
