Doubt: An Interview with Kim Abunuwara


AOTC: What is your favorite character moment in Doubt?


Kim: I love it when Sister James stands up to Sister Aloyisus by owning her love of frosty the snowman and teaching. That takes a lot of courage.


AOTC: What was your "Ah-Ha!" moment for Doubt? When did you click with your character as an actor?


Kim: When I stopped using a Boston dialect.



AOTC: What is your character's relationship to truth? How do they find it? What is their source for truth?


Kim: Sister Aloysius trusts her experience and she interprets the world according to that experience. I think this is true of all of us; our lives shape us. We encounter terrifying challenges--like the death of a husband or disappointment in ourselves--and in order to continue to live, we write a story in which those experiences make sense. The harder those experiences have been, the tighter we grip our story.



AOTC: What is your favorite quote from Doubt?

Life is perhaps longer than you think and the dictates of the soul more numerous.

An Other Theatre Company acknowledges that our theatre stands on the traditional lands of the Núu-agha-tʉvʉ-pʉ̱ (Ute) nation. White settlers seized the land colonially known as Provo from the Ute People and other neighboring tribes through the unratified and unfulfilled Treaty of Spanish Fork in 1865, in exchange for basic needs and rights, under the direction of Brigham Young.

 

We also recognize the stolen lives of the enslaved Africans brought to Utah by early white settlers, and acknowledge that their subjugation and forced labor helped to establish the cities that exist in this area today.

 

We strive to de-colonize Utah theatre through careful season selection, casting choices, diversity in leadership and creative roles, and ongoing conversation and education.
