One Noble Journey: A Box Marked Freedom
2/10/14 - 7 PM

This riveting one-person play performed by Mike Wiley tells the true story of Henry “Box” Brown, a slave from Louisa County, Virginia, who escaped bondage by mailing himself to freedom in a small wooden box. Brown’s life unfolds like a Mark Twain adventure—perilous and somber at times, while humorous and heroic throughout.

Audience members will join Wiley on stage, becoming pivotal players who help propel the historic action.
