staged readingsDoubt left us all in doubt. We welcomed two lovely crowds to enjoy the play Doubt by John Patrick Shanley. Afterwards a spirited and lively debate followed about the nature of gender roles, power, religion, race, gossip and lies. What was clear is no one knew a thing. An excerpt from an excited guest who review the show on her blog.

“Doubt can be a bond as powerful and sustaining as certainty. When you are lost, you are not alone.”
 –Father Flynn
And that was certainly true this evening at TLS Frankfurt, when after tonights staged reading at Petterweil Straße 66, Bornheim, the small (but insightful) audience and engrossing cast, had to be asked to leave.
“You don’t have to go home,” said the director,”but you can’t stay here.”
We hesitated. Doubt bonded us. We wanted to stay and talk, because thankfully, John Patrick Shanley seen, that in a world where immorality, finds — always– dark places to cast further shadow, a kind act, is to leave something. Something to talk about. Something to bond.
