Directed by Matt Martello Assistant Director Producer Stage Manager Alexa Ducsay Brenda Casher Alexa Ducsay Set Design Sound Design Matt Martello & Mishael Bingham Lighting Design Julian J ocque Nick Spencer Costume Design Technical Supervisor Penny LaMauvais Thorn Johnson Properties Master Michael Rudowski Graphic Design House Manager Brodie Brockie Sharon Guyton Cast Photographer Publicity Photographer Caleb Newman Tom Steppe Produced through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Serivce, Inc., New York NY I would like to personally welcome you to this performance of]ohn Patrick Shanley's Doubt, a Parable. This is by far one of my favorite newer scripts. I'd like to take a few minutes to try and explain why. For me, a truly great drama leaves questions unanswered. At the end of Death of a Salesman, we are left to wonder what will become of Biff and Happy? Will they ever get their lives together and achieve some level of fulfillment? What happens to the Magrath sisters in Crimes ofthe Heart after they have taken that brief moment in time to celebrate Lenny's birthday? Does Meg return to California and her failed singing career? Can Babe possibly hope for anything better than jail time after her trial? Doubt is one of those new great dramas. There will certainly be questions at the conclusion of tonight's performance. Is Father Flynn guilty of any wrongdoing, or is he the victim of an aggressive witch hunt? That is left for the audience members to decide. For me, I saw Doubt twice on Broadway, and had different reactions each time I saw it. Having the chance to direct it, I had varying reactions to the characters nightly. I offer a lot of credit to the four extremely talented individuals who not only took on the roles, but took on the role as students of this particular script. Sure, we went through the stage business and blocking, but we all chose to study and analyze this very important script along the way. Dorothy, John, Kimmy and Liz: I thank you for your efforts. Continuing with the "thank you's," I would like to thank Alexa and Brenda for all of their hard work during this production. I would like to thank A2CT in general for giving me the chance to direct in my personal "Big House" (I feel that anything with Mr. Miller's name on it would certainly qualifY). Finally, I would like to thank my father, Donald Kenneth Martello and Mr. Harry Wilcox for being my two greatest influences not only in theatre, but in my life. They are the two classiest gentlemen I will ever know. I do sincerely hope that you enjoy this performance of Doubt, a Parable. -Matt Martello CAST (in order of appearance) Father Brendan Flynn ............................................................
