THE BEST OF ENEMIES
by Mark St. Germain
Meet Ann, an African-American civil rights activist, and C.P., the
Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan. They are forced to work together
by the federal government to achieve integration in their small North
Carolina town fifteen years after Brown v. Board of Education. Clearly,
they will never be friends, but over the course of the play they
discover all the things they have in common, and ultimately forge an
alliance based on respect and trust. Impossible to believe – except
