Twenty-one-year-old Sophie Scholl is a college student, anti-Nazi activist and, along with her brother, a member of The White Rose resistance. Charged with treason and held in a German prison, Sophie is forced to play a psychological game of cat and mouse as she fights for her life and soul with a Gestapo interrogator.

Raised Voices: A CONVERSATIONS Series at Taproot Theatre Company
Will Not Be Silent
is a play that examines the story of Sophie Scholl, a young woman who raised her voice in protest against the Nazi regime in the 1940s. Sophie Scholl’s story is a remarkable tale of courage, but it is important to remember that history is full of heroes like Sophie—ordinary people who raised their voices to protest injustice and who paid a cost for speaking out.
Taproot Theatre is excited to partner with the Church Council of Greater Seattle and The Sheri and Les Biller Family Foundation to present Raised Voices
—a series of events celebrating the stories of Seattle activists who are speaking into specific areas of injustice in our city.
