Mike Wiley is the NC-based playwright, actor and director whose distinctive original works in documentary theatre, film, educational residencies, and performances for student audiences have been acclaimed across America and abroad.
His dramas relay the stories of fugitive slaves, civil rights game-changers, sports heroes, and freedom fighters. Dynamic multi-character portrayals offer penetrating views into parallel lives whose roles within African American history have shaped a richer total American experience. Wiley’s remarkable one-man “cast” sometimes introduces dozens of characters during the course of a single play. Morphing from young to old, man to woman, and African American to white, his gripping stories enlighten and inspire audiences of every age to apply history’s lessons to events and situations of the present.
