A Shakespearian actor and theatre professor, Craig Wallace was featured recently at Ford's in Jessica Dickey's world-premiere play The Guard, a performance nominated for the Helen Hayes Awards' James MacArthur Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Play. Wallace also starred at Ford's as Hoke Colburn in the 2014 production of Driving Miss Daisy, as Frederick Douglass in the 2012 world-premiere play Necessary Sacrifices, and in productions of Jitney, Sabrina Fair, The Laramie Project and Our Town.
