Reminder: Doubt Ticket Deadline is TODAY

A quick reminder that The Sixth Act deadline for purchasing discounted tickets to Geva’s production of Doubt is TODAY. For more information, please see below.


In partnership with Geva Theatre Center, The Sixth Act is pleased to invite all MCC faculty, staff, and students to attend the Thursday, October 25, production of John Patrick Shanley’s Pulitzer Prize winning play Doubt: A Parable. There will be a preview at 7 p.m.; the play begins at 8 p.m.; and there will be a post-show talkback with the actors and director (we hope) immediately following the play. All tickets are $18 and must be reserved by Monday, October 8, through Professor Jim McCusker ("" ). Tickets are limited and will be confirmed on a first-come, first-serve basis, so please get your orders in early.

Doubt ostensibly tells the story of a priest accused of child molestation. Evidence abounds on both sides, and whether or not he is in fact guilty in the end is not revealed. As Shanley writes about his play, “Doubt requires more courage than conviction does, and more energy; because conviction is a resting place and doubt is infinite—it is a passionate exercise. You may come out of my play uncertain. You may want to be sure. Look down on that feeling. We’ve got to learn to live with a full measure of uncertainty. There is no last word. That’s the silence under the chatter of our time.” Indeed, this provocative play is not so much an exploration of molestation as it is an exploration of doubt itself.
