Mike Wiley in One Noble Journey

Tuesday, November 16, 2021

Performances: 10:30am, 1pm, 5:30pm

Henry “Box” Brown was an African American born into slavery in 1816 in Louisa County, Virginia. Although he was not subjected to physical violence, Henry’s story (the basis for One Noble Journey) demonstrates that the cruelty of slavery was every bit as devastating to the heart as it could be on the body. After his family was torn apart and parceled out to various beneficiaries of the estate, Henry devised an ingenious escape plan – sealing himself in a wooden box for shipment to friends and freedom in Philadelphia.

Mike Wiley is a North Carolina-based actor, playwright and director of multiple one-man documentary dramas and full-cast ensemble plays.  A gifted and visionary artist and communicator, Wiley’s overriding goal is expanding cultural awareness for audiences of all ages through dynamic portrayals based on pivotal moments in African-American history and, in doing so, helping to unveil a richer picture of the total American experience

A timely love story--with a slight twist--about the need to connect.

By A.R. Gurney

Sylvia is a smart, silly, sophisticated, and occasionally salty comedy about relationships, nature, and growing older.

Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife in this modern romantic comedy about a marriage, and a dog.
