Lobby Hero, nominated for the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Play, tells the story of Jeff, a luckless young security guard trying to get his life together after being thrown out of the navy.

Doubt, A Parable

November 8,9, and 10 at 7:30 p.m.
November 11 at 2:30 p.m.
By John Patrick Shanley
Directed by Sheridan Smith

Published in 2005 just as relevant today - “A superb new drama written by John Patrick Shanley. It is an inspired study in moral uncertainty with the compellingly certain structure of an old-fashioned detective drama. Even as Doubt holds your conscious attention as an intelligently measured debate play, it sends off stealth charges that go deeper emotionally. One of the years ten best. Ben Brantley, The New York Times
