  • BEST OF ENEMIES
    JAN 12 - FEB 04

    Their views made them enemies…until their lives made them friends. A Ku Klux Klan member and a civil rights advocate clash then become unlikely friends in this true story of racial tension and reconciliation set in Durham, North Carolina in 1971. (Based on the bestselling book, THE BEST OF ENEMIES, by Osha Gray Davidson) PLEASE NOTE: BEST OF ENEMIES is a true reflection of the racial unrest of the early 1970s, and contains brief instances of strong language and racial slurs that some will find objectionable. We believe that the play’s redemptive message overshadows this, but recommend that parents determine whether or not it is appropriate for their children.
