BREACH OF PEACE: THE FREEDOM RIDERS OF 1961
Written & Performed by Mike Wiley
On May 24, 1961 19-year-old Jean Thompson boarded a Trailways bus in Montgomery, Alabama, with 11 other young Freedom Riders bound for New Orleans– and history. This solo play is a living monument to those remarkable young men and women of various races, religions, and backgrounds. Breach of Peace is based on true accounts of surviving participants of the Freedom Riders as well as many other individuals involved in the early struggle for African-American equality.
Performances will take place at the Lawrenceville Arts Center in the Clyde & Sandra Strickland Grand Stage
