PITTSFIELD -- Berkshire Actors Theatre (BAT) has announced a new event taking place as part of its 2012 season at the Berkshire Museum.
Following the 5 p.m. July 1 performance of "Doubt: A Parable," a talk-back will be held with Sister Margaret ("Peggy") McEntee of the Sisters of Charity at Mount Saint Vincent in Bronx, N.Y. -- where the "Doubt" movie was filmed. Sister Peggy was playwright John Patrick Shanley’s first-grade teacher, and the real-life inspiration for the character of Sister James in the play. She will talk about her relationship with Shanley, her experiences with the film as a consultant and share her own personal reflections on the play. This will be an audience Q & A.
Tickets are available at the Berkshire Museum’s front desk, or by calling (413) 443-7171. ext. 10. The BAT production of "Doubt" runs through July 14. The company’s production of Shanley’s "Four Dogs and a Bone" runs from July 2 through July 15.
