Sister Peggy McEntee tells the audience that when writer/director John Patrick Shanley was 6 years old and she was 21, they were in 1st grade together! Sr. Peggy was then known as Sr. Mary James and the Amy Adams character in the play and film was based on her. Shanley also dedicated the film "Doubt" to Sr. Peggy who at 72 years of age teaches five religion classes daily at Notre Dame High School in New York.
