News   Berkshire Actors Theatre Will Stage John Patrick Shanley's Doubt and Four Dogs and a Bone
 
Berkshire Actors Theatre will present two plays by Pulitzer Prize winner John Patrick Shanley as part of  its 2012 summer season, which begins June 21 at the Berkshire Museum: Doubt and Four Dogs and a Bone, which will be performed in repertory.

"The idea of running these two plays in repertory appealed to me as a way to create a striking juxtaposition between theatre that makes you think deeply about important issues and theatre that allows you to simply be entertained," said artistic director Clover Bell-Devaney in a statement. "The chance to experience two totally different sides of one renowned playwright's work is a unique opportunity for actors and audience alike, and I'm so pleased to have John Patrick Shanley on board to consult with about his work during the creative process." Shanley's Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning Doubt will play June 21-July 14. The play, according to Berkshire, "explores its characters' struggle to hold on to their deeply held beliefs within the confines of a Bronx Catholic School in 1964."

Four Dogs and a Bone, which was previously seen at the Berkshire, will be remounted by the company beginning June 30 for a run through July 15. The play is "a hilarious send-up about the movie making business."
