Did He or Didn’t He? Forge Theatre Presents Doubt

Forge Theatre in Phoenixville continues its season with one of the most critically-acclaimed plays of the last decade -- John Patrick Shanley's Doubt: A Parable. This fast-moving, suspenseful drama opens November 5 and runs weekends until November 20.

Set in a 1964 Bronx Catholic school, the drama centers around the hard-edged principal, Sister Aloysius, who, after learning about a friendship between Father Flynn and a young boy in the school, decides to take matters into her own hands. Acting on her suspicions, Sister Aloysius is convinced that Father Flynn will be blindly protected by the church hierarchy, and decides to take him down herself. What follows is a bristling confrontation between the fiercely protective nun and the priest who feels that she has overstepped her authority.

The Forge cast for Doubt includes Sherry Snyder as Sister Aloysius, Eric Jarrell as Father Flynn, Andrea Daniels as Sister James, and Tia Allen as Mrs. Muller. Cindy Schneider is directing.

Performances are November 5, 6, 12, 13, 18, 19, and 20 at 8pm; November 14 at 2pm. There will be a talkback with the director and cast immediately following the Sunday, November 14th performance.

Tickets are $12, student tickets are $10. Forge Theatre, now in its 49th year, is located at 241 First Avenue in Phoenixville. For more information, visit http://ForgeTheatre.org or call 610-935-1920.

Doubt won the Tony for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, as well as the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League, Lortel and Obie Awards for Best Play.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
