1964. The Bronx, New York. Iron-willed Sister Aloysius, head of St. Nicholas Catholic School, suspects that Father Flynn is having an improper relationship with a student. The well-being of a young boy, the reputation of the school, and the fate of a popular priest are all at stake. Though lacking evidence, Sister Aloysius follows her convictions with singular focus. But what must be compromised in pursuit of the truth? is the truth more complex and more costly than first believed? With deeply drawn characters and taut dialogue, this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama explores the human discomfort with the gray areas of life.
