NECESSARY SACRIFICES

By Richard Hellesen | Directed by Karen Lund

Five words were meant to change a young country divided by civil war when abolitionist and Union recruiter Frederick Douglass challenged his president to act on the statement that “all men are created equal.” As these two brilliant Americans wage a battle for the future of the Union, their arguments affect not only their sons but the nation we live in today. Originally commissioned for Washington, DC’s Ford’s Theatre, Taproot Theatre produces the West Coast Premiere of Richard Hellesen’s drama.

THE BISHOP’S WIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY

Adapted by Karen & Mark Lund from THE BISHOPS WIFE LUX RADIO THEATER by J. Walter Thompson | Original Music by Michael Nutting

The beloved holiday film comes to life as a live radio broadcast with you as the in-studio audience! Dudley is an angel and the answer to Bishop Brougham’s prayer to build a new cathedral. But when the angel turns his attention to the bishop’s friends and family, Dudley’s minor miracles require divine intervention. Join us this Christmas season for a story of love, family and blessings in disguise.
