Interested in volunteering with Triad Stage? We have a variety of volunteer opportunities. At the heart of our volunteer program are our volunteer ushers, who hand out programs, tear tickets and direct guests during all of our performances at The Pyrle Theater in downtown Greensboro. Volunteer ushers work closely with our Front of House staff to ensure that our patrons have the best experience possible at the theater. We also have opportunities throughout the year in our administrative office and at community events.
Thank you for your interest in Triad Stage. We are unable to accept unsolicited scripts at this time. Due to the volume of material we consider each year Triad Stage only accepts play submissions from playwrights, agents, and theatre artists with whom we have an existing professional relationship. Unsolicited scripts will be returned when there is a SASE enclosed; those without a SASE will be recycled.
Please note that Triad Stage does not provide any comments or suggestions about work that we do not intend to develop or produce. If you have any questions or need additional information, please email Sarah Hankins, Associate Artistic Director.

Martha -- (Female, late 40s - mid 50s) Martha plays vicious games with her husband George, constantly pushing at the edges of what is allowed and finding new ways to win. As the daughter of the university president, she has status in the community and power over George. Frequently loud and vulgar, Martha is unafraid to take up space or break the rules. She is sexually confident and determined to get what she wants, not matter the cost or how it may affect other people. She is older than George, which is a touchy subject for her. Ultimately her brazen exterior covers a deep self-loathing and and rejection of what she has become. Despite loving each other deeply, she and George have engaged in dangerous stories and illusions to make their life bearable. Without them, she is vulnerable once again.
George -- (Male, early - mid 40s) A history professor with little career success, which Martha continually mentions. Faced with the unwanted afterparty, George plays host, but when provoked by Martha he reveals his cruelty, his wicked intelligence, and an expertise with manipulation. The games that George and Martha play operate on several levels at once, leaving their guests in the dark. As the evening unravels, Martha humiliates George, leaving him jealous and vulnerable. George and Martha have hidden their love for each other by indulging in a dangerous and secret illusion. Now George must decide how far he is willing to go to win or how far he and Martha must go in order to change their lives forever.
Nick -- (Male, late 20s) A handsome, intelligent man who is a new biology professor at the university. He can play the social game of faculty politics, but still has much to learn. Although he initially presents himself as reserved and pedantic, with the pressure of the games George and Martha play Nick reveals himself to be power-hungry, cocky, lustful, and possessive. Physically fit and powerful, Nick is a former college boxing champion and George frequently mocks Nick’s blonde hair and blue eyes as social ideals. Nick is sexually confident with Martha and isn’t afraid to stand up to George. Although Nicks resents and belittles Honey, Nick demands his wife Honey’s absolute faithfulness. But when the chips are down, he reveals that his confidence and pedantry conceal fears of powerlessness and infertility.
Honey -- (Female, mid - late 20s) Awkward and a bit out of her league at the party, Honey continues to attempt to observe social niceties, even when faced with the extremity of George and Martha’s misbehavior. It is revealed that Nick only married Honey because he thought she was pregnant, which affects their relationship on every level. She is frequently referred to as mousy and delicate and has difficulty holding her liquor. When drunk she is impetuous, funny, and loves to dance. Ultimately Honey has a deep capacity for empathy and a secret of her own.
