COMING SOON TO TAPROOT THEATRE:
Best of Enemies
Runs March 27 – April 25 and previews March 25 & 26. Written by Mark
St. Germain. The play is based on The Best of Enemies by Osha Gray
In 1971 the schools of Durham, North Carolina were racially segregated,
until a Ku Klux Klan member and a Civil Rights activist were forced to
work together to solve the problem.
This remarkable and true story shines
a spotlight on our humanity and the surprising gifts that come when we
are willing to change.
