Triad Stage has received two national grants totaling $70,000, one of which will help finance a new play about the 1960 Greensboro sit-ins. “To be recognized for our work on the national level means a great deal,” said Richard Whittington, founding managing director of the downtown professional theater.
Preston Lane’s newest play, “Actions and Objectives,” may be based in the fictional town of “Hawboro, N.C.”But with its debates over Confederate memorials and the fictionalization of the Civil War, it could be Reidsville. With the woes that it depicts in a town whose economy is struggling to regain its footing after the decline of a bedrock industry it could be Eden or High Point or Kannapolis. With its reference to the fallout over the mixed legacy of Gov. Charles Aycock, it could be Greensboro.
Triad Stage and Hanesbrands Theatre hosted a world premiere Saturday night in downtown Winston-Salem. The result of four years of work, research and experiences, the one-woman story “And So We Walked: An Artist’s Journey along the Trail of Tears” gave voice to a contemporary vision of the Cherokee people’s journey. Written and performed by DeLanna Studi, born and raised by a full-blooded Cherokee father and a white mother in Oklahoma, the story telling chiefly remains in modern times.
