St. Nicholas Church School in the Bronx, 1964. Sister Aloysius, the school’s principal, starts to question Father Flynn's ambiguous relationship with a troubled young man — the school's first Black student. As the progressive priest and traditional nun are drawn into a battle of wills, motivations are challenged and alliances are formed with possibly irreversible consequences. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award, this riveting psychological drama raises more questions than it answers. On the 20th anniversary of its off-Broadway premiere, Shanley's engrossing parable about the perils of moral certainty is more current and necessary than ever.

“A breathtaking work of immense proportion. Positively brilliant.”  Entertainment Weekly

“An eloquent and provocative investigation of truth and consequences. A gripping mystery, tightly written.”  Time Out NY
