PlayMakers Rep | “Leaving Eden”

Tue–Sat at 7:30pm; Sun at 2:00pm; plus Sat the 14th at 2:00pm.


Acclaimed playwright and UNC alum Mike Wiley returns to PlayMakers with singer-songwriter Laurelyn Dossett to explore through words and music, the cyclical nature of human behavior. A story of racial tension, immigration, and economic crisis in a small North Carolina town—this unearthing of yesterday yields a hopeful hymn for our future.

“[Wiley’s] shows are sophisticated blends of narrative and wit.”
American Theatre

“You will find hardly anyone who has the muse sitting with them more than Laurelyn.”
Joe Newberry, NC Dept of Cultural Resources
