Synopsis: Sister Aloysius is severe, conservative and strict and comes to doubt Father Flynn and his behaviour involving an altar boy. Sister James, young, impressionable doubts that the accusation is true, Aloysius doubts Flynn (and society generally) and eventually reveals that she has fabricated some of her story leading her to doubt herself and leaving the audience in some doubt too. Reflecting contemporary issues in our society this is highly a relevant play.
