McDaniel College Theatre will present “Best of Enemies,” a drama written by Mark St. Germain.  The show, a co-production with Coppin State University, is directed by Coppin State Theatre Arts faculty member Willie Jordan.

Based on the bestselling book by Osha Gray Davidson, “Best of Enemies” is a true story about the relationship between C.P. Ellis, a Grand Cyclops of the KKK, and Ann Atwater, an African-American civil rights activist, during the desegregation of the Durham, North Carolina, schools in 1971.  “Best of Enemies” exposes the poison of prejudice in the hearts of Atwater and Ellis who, by facing each other, are forced to face the worst, and best, in themselves.  The play contains strong language, including racially offensive language, and mature themes.

Performances at Coppin State University are September 18 through September 21 at 7:30 p.m. and September 22 at 3:00 p.m.  Ticket prices are as follows: General Admission: $25; Seniors/Non-Coppin Students: $20; Coppin Students w/ID: $10.  The Box Office number is 410-951-3369.

Performances at McDaniel College take place October 2 through October 5 at 7:30 p.m. in WMC Alumni Hall Theatre.  Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for seniors, students, military, and the McDaniel College community.  For more information, call the box office at 410-857-2448.
