"Dar He" (EbzB Productions). Apex-based actor Mike Wiley wrote and starred in this hard-hitting depiction of the circumstances leading to the 1955 murder of 14-year old African-American Emmett Till. He portrayed two dozen characters -- male, female, black, white, young and old -- without letting his bravura feats overshadow the text's gut-wrenching messages.
