Doubt: A Parable Truth and consequences are explored in the thrilling drama Doubt: A Parable. On suspecting an improper relationship between Father Flynn and a male student at a Bronx school, a stern Catholic nun and school principal Sister Aloysius Beauvier (played by Belinda Giblin, pictured below) decides to take matters into her Guru of Chai Jacob Rajan, playing the title character in this production, tells us at the beginning that Belvoir’s people have invited him in because their audiences are overweight, work in useless jobs and drink too much, so they need cheering up. This is played with such comic charm that the effect is utterly disarming. This is very economical theatrical storytelling: a few props and costumes, some shadow puppetry, a sudden stiffening or relaxing of Rajan’s stance when he is switching characters. With these the whole world of the story is completed by our imagination. The show is beguiling and very funny until, at the end, a touch of darkness creeps in, as in all great fairytales. Belvoir Theatre, 25 Belvoir Street, Sydney. Tickets: $32-$48. Today, 2,15pm and 8.15pm; final show tomorrow, 5.15pm. Bookings: (02) 9699 3444 or online.
