Doubt: A Parable, 28th November to 2nd December
St Nicholas Catholic School, New York, 1964. Head nun and Principal, Sister Aloysius Beauvier, welcomes Donald Muller, the first black child ever to attend the school. But when Father Flynn seems to be having an intimate relationship with the boy, her faith is tested to its limits.
