Best of Enemies

Taproot Theatre presents Best of Enemies by Mark St. Germain through Saturday, April 25. $5 discounts are available on every ticket reserved using the code CCGS (for Church Council of Greater Seattle).

Is it possible for sworn enemies to find common ground in solving the world's problems? In 1971 the schools of Durham, NC were racially segregated until a Ku Klux Klan member and a Civil Rights activist were forced to meet face-to-face to negotiate. The result was nothing short of a miracle. This remarkable and true story shines a spotlight on our humanity and the surprising gifts that come when we are willing to change.

The Church Council of Greater Seattle will moderate talk-backs after the 2 p.m. performance on Saturday, April 11 and the 7:30 performance on Thursday, April 16. The John Perkins Center at Seattle Pacific University will moderate talk-backs after the 7:30 performances on Wednesdays April 15 and 22. Find more details on the leaders and the themes of the talk-backs here.

Tickets are available online here or through Taproot's Box Office at 206.781.9707. Discount code: CCGS
Taproot Theatre is located at 204 N. 85th St., Seattle.

Statement from Church Council of Greater Seattle

"How Long, O Lord?"

The grand jury decision not to charge Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson for killing the unarmed young man, Michael Brown, reinforces the grief and anger that residents of Ferguson and around the nation have felt since this tragic shooting took place. Our cries ring out, not for vengeance, but for justice - for an end to the violent taking of the lives of innocent people, particularly African American men, and for the cessation of the use of unnecessary and deadly force as a substitute for responsible community policing and nonviolent alternatives to the sequence of confrontation, escalation, and loss of life.

Read the whole statement here.
