Chicago Heights, IL-(ENEWSPF)- “The Drama Group is pleased to continue our season, as we present the third show in our 90th Anniversary Season, this time a gripping story of suspicion, DOUBT by John Patrick Shanley and directed by Michael J Renzi,” the Group said in a release. Veteran actor Deb Brunette-Cairns of Park Forest leads the cast as Sister Aloysius.
Brunette-Cairns tells eNews Park Forest she knew the character of Sister Aloysius for a long while, “I love the script of Doubt and the part of Sister Alyosius is something I’ve always wanted to play. She is an unyielding, unbending seemingly black or white character. Not very likable, but I am finding her layers and a humanity in her convictions.”
Ms. Brunette-Cairns has been involved with the Drama Group either acting or directing since 1975.
Showtimes for DOUBT are 7:30 pm beginning Friday, February 18. It continues, 19, 24, 25, and 26; Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm February 20 and 27.

SYNOPSIS – DOUBT
Winner of a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony Award, this compelling drama lays bare the torment of a nun, Sister Aloysius, who suspects a young priest, Father Flynn, of improper relations with a male student. An engrossing and thought-provoking masterpiece that is an exploration of faith, power, and compassion.
“Everyone wants to know if he is guilty,” said Deb Brunette-Cairns. “The author wants the audience to make up their own mind as to the validity of the accusation. That’s the beauty of DOUBT, everyone can see things differently.”
