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.
When actor/playwright DeLanna Studi steps onto the Hanesbrands Theatre stage with Triad Stage’s “And So We Walked,” she’ll not only be premiering her own work after four years of development and readings. She’ll also be telling a contemporary story about a culture that dates back 40,000 years.
Preston Lane, the founding artistic director of the Triad Stage theater group, has received a literary arts fellowship from the Sally and Don Lucas Arts Program at the Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, Calif. Lane is one of four playwrights in the world selected for the fellowship. Fellowships are awarded every three years, and candidates must be nominated and pass through a selective jury process.
The world premiere of Preston Lane’s “Actions and Objectives” took place at the Triad Stage this past weekend. On Friday, April 7, a cast of fifteen actors and seven creative team staff members came together to help perform an unrestrained political play within a play about the contemporary South. “Actions and Objectives” takes the setting of the fictionalized Hawboro, a repeat of three of Lane’s other plays including “Providence Gap,” “Common Enemy” and “Radiant Abundant.” Hawboro, is a small Southern town situated in the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina that was finally in a state of tranquility after the recent debacles with the Zebulon Zebras in Lane’s play “Common Enemy.”
