GREENSBORO, N.C. -- How much do you love Tar Heels basketball? What about Duke? NC State? East Carolina? UNCG?

Do you love them enough to take a good, hard look at the program? That’s what local playwright and director Preston Lane is doing.

Lane is the co-founder of Triad Stage and his latest production looks more like a documentary of recent events than a play. Set in a fictional North Carolina college, the storyline will make you sit up and say, “Wow, that’s what’s going on, right now.”

It looks at how these major programs are run and asks questions that – though, may be uncomfortable – need to be asked.
