Mike Wiley is a North Carolina-based actor & playwright whose compelling works of documentary theatre yield rich and powerful journeys to milestones and turning points of a cultural history. With a remarkable ability to inspire dialog, his creative vision and talents are broad and magnetic. He shares a gift that helps audiences and communities start to peel layers of misunderstanding. When the curtain comes down on a performance, the experience has far from “ended.” It’s much more likely that light may have seeped through. 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 American experience.
