The Newton Nomads Return to the ACL! Doubt: A Parable

Saturday, February 4 at 7:30 pm & Sunday, February 5 at 3:00 pm

The Nomads’ newest show opens on Fri Jan 27 and they’ve got a good one.  And once again, they will hold performances at the ACL!

John Patrick Shanley’s Doubt: A Parable has been described as a “blunt and blazing thriller”.   Did he? or didn’t he? that’s the question at the heart of this Pulitzer prize winning script.

Doubt is set in a Catholic elementary school in the 1960’s.  The changing tides of the times and dark suspicions pit the principal of the school (Linda Goetz) against a parish priest (Matt Winberg) with a young nun (Sarah Morisette) caught in the crossfire.  Hanging in the balance is one boy’s fate, the first black student in the school, with his mother to defend him (Ramona Lisa Alexander).  Moment to moment the story is in turns funny, tense, heartrending, and explosive.

This production features the stellar Linda Goetz (Faith Healer, Beauty Queen of Leenane, A Picasso) and three wonderful Nomadic Theater newcomers.  Sarah Morrisette,  Matt Winberg, and Ramona Lisa Alexander will be making their Nomadic Theater debut.  Our favorite director, Newton Nomadic regular Billy Meleady (Turn of the Screw, Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me) is back in the director’s seat.


WARNING:  Get your tickets now!  This show will only run for four weekends rather than our usual five.   Our last show (Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me) sold out every show in the last half of the run, so we’re guessing tickets for this show will sell out early.   Don’t miss it – once again we have a great script, a great new cast and it promises to be another Newton Nomadic show to remember.
As always, each night or two the show will move to a new and unique performance space.   Like nomads the world over, we never settle in any one place for long.   Along with some of our favorite venues, we’re excited to be bringing it to a living room in Jamaica Plain (Sally & Tim Deans home) for the first time.

Join us at an art studio, a barn, a library, a living room, a rug store or a pub.  Visit Newton Nomads to order your tickets now!
