In addition to his one-man shows, Mike has also written several plays for ensemble casts. These works revolve around The Freedom Riders of 1961, the lives of families left behind when military loved ones deploy, and the story of man who learned to read at 98. His collaboration with singer/songwriter Hiss Golden Messenger gives voice to 1920s West Virginia coal miners. His work with fellow playwright Howard Craft brings the fictional superhero Jade City Pharaoh to life, while his Parallel Lives podcasts tell the stores of real-life civil rights superheroes like Claudette Colvin.
