A Game Apart: Jackie Robinson Dinner
A Game Apart provides a glimpse of Jackie Robinson’s life during a bygone era of separate and unequal locker rooms, of whites only hotels and of restaurants with only a back door for colored athletes to enter. Mike Wiley’s acclaimed, award-winning works span the stories of fugitive slaves, sports figures and freedom fighters, the struggle of the common man and more. His works are primarily one-man shows, where Wiley sometimes portrays dozens of characters over the course of a single play.
