Blood Done Sign My Name — May 28th-June 8th
The best selling novel by Tim Tyson, is brought to life by celebrated actor/
writer, Michael Wiley. Based on the events surrounding the 1970 murder of

Williams reinforces the action with renditions of spiritual classics.

Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs after a six year absence, to celebrate Christmas with her parents, brother, and aunt …and to announce that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family’s history – a wound they don’t want reopened. In effect, she draws a line in the sand and dares them all to cross it.
Parade — July 9th-27th
A regional premiere for the Triangle, Parade tells the tragic, true story of the trial and lynching of a man wrongly accused of murder.
