The Creative and Performing Arts Center (CAPAC), a production company based in the Washington, D.C., metro area is bringing another brilliant production to the stage. This time, CAPAC is teaming up with Mike Wiley Productions to educate, enlighten and inspire its audience with “One Noble Journey: A Box Marked Freedom.”
On Saturday, September 23, 2017, at 3:00 p. m. and 7:00 p. m., the remarkable one man show, the true story of Henry “Box” Brown, will be performed at the Hylton Performing Arts Center. Mr. Brown was a Black man born into slavery in Louisa County, Virginia, in 1816, who escaped the perils of slavery by mailing himself in a wooden box safely and miraculously to freedom in the North.
This telling depiction is brilliantly presented by Mr. Mike Wiley, a touring actor/playwright born and raised in Virginia. Mr. Wiley has a portfolio in which he brings to life some of our nation’s heroes, as he uses the arts to educate and call others to action.
CAPAC looks forward to working with Mr. Wiley and bringing this rare opportunity to the Prince William County area. For more information, visit capacweb.org.
