The play is set in the Bronx in 1964. Sister Aloysius, a disciplinarian nun and principle of St Nicholas Catholic school, suspects the new parish priest of sexually abusing one of the children - the first black student ever admitted to the school. She decides to confront Father Flynn, relying on the support of Sister James, a younger and more progressive nun.
But will her unproven allegations destroy his reputation or derail her career?

The Really Small Theatre Company puts on plays with small casts and with minimal fuss. Formed in 2005, RSTC's first production was John Misto’s ‘The Shoe-horn Sonata’ - a powerful piece about life in a women’s prisoner-of-war camp.
Yasmina Reza's ‘Art’, produced in 2007, was designed to travel: they performed in various venues in Helsinki and Porvoo. The following year, RSTC made two contributions to FELTIF: Alan Ayckbourne’s ‘Between Mouthfuls’ and N F Simpson’s ‘The Form’.
