presented by Mike Wiley Productions Tue. Mar. 14 & Wed. Mar. 15, 9:30am & 11am - runtime: 50 min. Thu. Mar. 16, 7pm – runtime: 90 min In 1955 a 14-year-old black Chicago youth traveled to the Mississippi Delta with country kinfolk and southern cooking on his mind.

Young Emmett crossed that line and stepped into his gruesome fate by whistling at a white woman. Written and performed by Mike Wiley, this riveting one-actor play chronicles the murder, trial and unbelievable confession of the men accused of Till’s lynching. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. Presented in Stage II. Grades: 8 and up. Tickets: All Seats $15 ($5 Student). A $4 handling fee per order applies in person, online, or by phone. Artists, programs and pricing are subject to change without notice. All sales are final, no refunds.
