Mike Wiley's Production of One Noble Journey

One Noble Journey: A Box Marked Freedom

Join us at Duke School for a Mike Wiley performance of One Noble Journey: A Box Marked Freedom on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, at 6:30 PM in the Lower School Gym. This production is free and open to the public.

One Noble Journey is a true story of three slaves who overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to gain a life of freedom. Wiley becomes Henry “Box” Brown a black slave who sees no alternative but to ‘mail himself to freedom’ in a small crate. Brown’s life unfolds like a Mark Twain adventure, perilous and somber at times while humorous and heroic throughout. Audience members join Wiley on stage, to become characters helping propel the historic action. This 50-minute performance is one that you can enjoy with the whole family! The performance is appropriate for third graders and older.
