No “Doubt about it at Oldcastle: “The point, of course, is that in the halls of irony, life imitates art, and so the answers we are left with seem both unsettling, and unsettled. That is the brilliance of Shanley’s modern classic, and all the more reason why no one should doubt that the journey to Oldcastle for this play – and these actors -is well worth it.”
