Breach of Peace is based on true accounts of surviving participants of the Freedom Rides as well as many other individuals involved in the early struggle for African-American equality. This solo-play, written and performed by Mike Wiley, is a living monument to those remarkable young men and women of various races, religions and backgrounds who rose to face the dangers of fighting for just and equal treatment for all.

Raleigh Little Theatre is proud to present Mike Wiley’s Breach of Peace. For two nights only, join in on this real-time live performance over Zoom. Keep your camera on so Mike can “see” and interact with his audience, projected live on stage with him. This production will be as close as you can get to attending a live in-person show without actually leaving your home. Stick around after each show for a live talkback with Mike!
Mike Wiley is a North Carolina-based actor & playwright whose compelling works of documentary theatre yield powerful journeys through milestones and turning points of a shared American history. With a remarkable ability to inspire dialog, his creative vision and talents are broad and magnetic, leading audiences and communities to begin to peel layers and barriers to true ‘community.’ When a curtain comes down on a Mike Wiley performance, the experience has far from “ended.” It’s more likely that light may have seeped through, that a stubborn door may have just nudged open.
