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 Davidson.

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.
