Dear Subscriber, 

I can’t wait to welcome you to Taproot’s 2022 Season. And before you come, I have one important question for you:  

Are You Ready to Play? 

I hope so because we have fun and games lined up for you this season. In The Nerd, Willum’s friends come up with an elaborate strategy to help him deal with an unwanted house guest—and we all know what happens to even the best laid plans. In Black Coffee, the indomitable Hercule Poirot matches wits against a killer to solve the puzzle of clues before it’s too late. And we’re delighted to close out our season by welcoming Faith Bennett Russell, Be Russell, and Sarah Russell back to the Taproot stage. You’ve seen all three of these women in various plays at Taproot Theatre, but you’ve never seen them all onstage together! A Night with the Russells: The Legacy of Us will be a cabaret of stories and songs to inspire you. You can read more about each play below.

Come join the fun at Taproot Theatre this year. We’re ready to play!

2022 Season’s Plays:

The Nerd
by Larry Shue

Three’s already a crowd in Willum’s house, but it’s as tight as a game of sardines when Rick unexpectedly arrives. He’s as interesting as quality control at a chalk factory, until his antics jeopardize Willum’s career. Sure, Rick once saved Willum’s life, but now he’s ruining it! Pass the deviled eggs, this party’s about to become a saucer-smashing good time!  


Black Coffee
by Agatha Christie

The formula for a secret weapon has been stolen, and that isn’t the only mystery in the Amory house! When Sir Claude discovers the theft, he locks his family in the library. Moments later there’s a dead body, a room full of suspects, and a Belgian sleuth at the door. Witness the famous Hercule Poirot untangle a jumble of deceptions to discover whodunit. 


A Night with the Russells: The Legacy of Us
Stories and Songs Performed by Faith Bennett Russell, Be Russell, and Sarah Russell

An evening of laughter, love, and unrelenting joy! Seattle’s own Sarah, Be, and Faith Bennett Russell carry on their family’s legacy as storytellers, while celebrating their individual journeys as Black female artists. From their roots in Jamaica to their home in Seattle, this cabaret is filled with songs both new and old. Bring your tissues and party-poppers and prepare to leave with a song in your heart.
