With Mother’s Day just around the corner, let Taproot Theatre help you and your mom celebrate! Let this Mother’s Day be extra special by making a memory together – purchase tickets for you and her to see The Realization of Emily Linder.

“We know these characters.  We know them from our own families – with all of the usual tensions, rivalries and see-saw emotions.” –

“…the second act contains a stream of revelations which are so surprising and engrossing, so wittily and cleverly set-up, and so intelligent and satisfying as to turn matters around a full 180 degrees, and turn Realization into a smart, richly satisfying entertainment.” –

“If you’re looking for a Mother’s Day present … consider tickets to ‘The Realization of Emily Linder…’” – NJ Arts


CONVERSATIONS: These Things Abide
Tuesday February 16, 2016
Jewell Mainstage Theatre | 7:30pm-9:00pm

“All I want to know is what’s true—what else is true. And how long is that list.”
Henrietta Leavitt from
Silent Sky

“What is true?” is a question that both scientists and theologians have asked throughout history. Is it possible for the fields of faith and science to speak truth to each other? Join us as Adrian Wyard of Counterbalance Foundation discusses the history of the conversation between faith and science and the possibilities for future dialogue. For more on Counterbalance and the faith/science connection please see

To reserve your tickets contact Sonja Lowe at or call the Taproot Theatre Box Office at 206.781.9707.

*This CONVERSATIONS event is held in conjunction with Taproot Theatre’s production of 
Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson.
