ACTORS’ EQUITY ASSOCIATION
Preston Lane∞◊◉ (Director, Triad Stage Producing Artistic Director) Preston grew up in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina with Appalachian ancestry stretching all the way back to Tidence Lane, the first Baptist preacher in what would become Tennessee. His childhood dream was to live in a NC Piedmont city where he could hear trains and interact daily with such big city trappings as revolving doors and escalators. He frequently checked out recorded plays on albums from the old Watauga County Public Library and spent many afternoons listening to Marat/Sade, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, and A Streetcar Named Desire. His central conflict as a child was that on Saturday evenings his parents wanted to watch The Lawrence Welk Show and he wanted to watch Hee Haw. This conflict still dominates much of his work. Besides a brief fascination with being a dump truck driver, Preston never considered any other career than as a theater maker. He became aware of himself as an artist at UNCSA, developed a passion for visual storytelling at Yale School of Drama, and is deeply indebted to a long line of collaborative partners. He is also thankful for amazing teachers from Miriam Darnell, Sandra Daye, John Foster West, Yury Belov, Earle Gister, Barney Hammond, Lesley Hunt, Ming Cho Lee, Nick Martin and many many others. Preston is honored to pass on the tradition they entrusted
Actors’ Equity Association (AEA) was founded in 1913 as the first of the American actor unions. Equity’s mission is to advance, promote and foster the art of live theatre as an essential component of our society. Today, Equity represents more than 40,000 actors, singers, dancers and stage managers working in hundreds of theatres across the United States. Equity members are dedicated to working in the theatre as a profession, upholding the highest artistic standards. Equity negotiates wages and working conditions and provides a wide range of benefits including health and pension plans for its members. Through its agreement with Equity, this theatre has committed to the fair treatment of the actors and stage managers employed in this production. AEA is a member of the AFL-CIO and is affiliated with FIA, an international organization of performing arts unions. For more information, visit www.actorsequity.org.
to him to the next generation. Gerald Freedman took him under his wing and Richard Hamburger gave him his first real job and mentored him. He founded Triad Stage with Rich Whittington to explore how theater can engage with a community. He’s directed nearly 100 shows, written almost a dozen, and is an honorary citizen of Hawboro, NC. He believes that theater can make our community stronger by exploring stories that unite and challenge us. Preston is grateful to be a theater maker in North Carolina.

Director's Notes I killed Edward Albee. On Friday September 16, 2016, I was teaching Collaboration to the UNCG MFA directors and designers. Somehow the subject of Edward Albee came up and one of the students asked why Triad Stage had never done one of his plays. I began to go through a long litany of stories about unpleasant encounters I’d witnessed with one of our greatest living playwrights. I was winding myself up into quite a fury detailing the time when he visited Guilford College and told me I would never be able to produce Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? He said everyone did that play and he wanted me to direct one of his much, much lesser known works. I ended my tirade by proclaiming: “I’ll never do an Albee play until he is dead!” Not long after, news alert bings sounded on students phones letting them know Edward Albee had indeed just passed away. And suddenly, my students were very, very well behaved. Long ago at Guilford, as I made my case with Albee as to why Triad Stage should be given the rights to his most famous play, I realized that I was fighting for something I had long desired to direct. No other play has been as much a part of my consciousness for as long as Who’s Afraid of VIrgina Woolf? The Watauga County Public Library in Boone had a selection of records and whenever I visited I’d check out one or two of the plays on LPs that were an odd niche market in the last half of the 20th Century. I more or less had three on constant checkout: the original RSC Marat/Sade, Rosemary Harris (who I knew from Penland, NC) as Blanche Dubois in A Streetcar Named Desire, and the complete dialogue from the film version of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? While today one might question the wisdom of allowing a precocious third grader to check out Albee’s play, I was delighted that in less censorious times, no one stopped me. I devoured the dialogue on multiple listenings, playing all four characters with the adult subject matter flying well over my head. I grew up with the play, and I as I grew more aware of its subjects and themes, I discovered it anew. Each listening, and eventually each reading and each performance I saw at theaters here and abroad, revealed something new in the story of this love story that masquerades as a drunken slug fest. Finally approaching the play as a director, I’ve been able to delve deeply into the stories of George and Martha and Nick and Honey. Critics have written endlessly about the symbolism and metaphors in Albee’s classic—he was at that time America’s answer to Brecht and Ionesco. But I’m less interested in the absurdism than I am in the story that unfolds this drunken night. What fascinates me is what happens when we create dreams and illusions to protect us from the dangers we fear. It’s the same question that was at the heart of Man of La Mancha last season. And the conversation started with that production, I hope will be continued with this. Albee didn’t want me to do this play because he felt it was overdone and I understand his desire to promote his less-liked children. But the fact is, this play has that unique hallmark of greatness. To approach it anew is to discover startling depths. As always when we explore the great plays, we are changed by our interactions with them. I hope this production stirs you and will stay in your thoughts for a long time to come.
(March 12, 1928 – September 16, 2016) One of the great and prolific American playwrights, Edward Albee often critiqued the idea of the “American Dream” in his work. He desired to dismantle the illusions that encourage us to adhere to a set of values or ideas that limit our expression. As one of Albee’s early plays, WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF continues his exploration of what truly happens behind closed doors and confronts us with the lies that we tell ourselves in order to survive the day-to-day horror of society. Adopted at a young age by a wealthy family, Albee’s youth and early experiences encouraged his disillusionment and satirical commentary on American life. Although he was very well provided for financially, Albee grew up with a sense of having never been loved. His family was a part of the upper echelon of society in Westchester and Albee chafed under their social rules and expectations. While his father was distant and uninvolved in his son’s life, his mother was reportedly cold and demanding. Albee was expelled from several schools as a teenager and struggled to find a place for himself. His only comfort was his grandmother, whom he dearly loved. Eventually, Albee became estranged from his adoptive family and escaped to Greenwich Village. His experiences with his family left an indelible mark on him and would be a source of his critique, which comes to the fore in WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF. Albee’s Broadway debut, WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF, opened to mixed reviews in October 1962, but earned several awards. In addition to the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for best play, WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF won five of the six Tony awards for which it was nominated, including Best Play and Best Production. Although the play was recommended by the Pulitzer committee for a Pulitzer Prize in Drama, the Pulitzer board refused to award it to Albee due to the play’s content and tone. Two board members resigned in protest and the guidelines were changed in subsequent years. No Pulitzer would be awarded to any play in 1963, but Albee would ultimately win three Pulitzers for later works. The unexpected commercial success of WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF allowed Albee a certain amount of financial security and gave him an opportunity to start a program for young playwrights called The Playwright’s Unit. The production company aimed to give young playwrights a forum in which to produce new work and take artistic risks. Participants included Terrence McNally, Sam Shepherd, Lanford Wilson, and many other leaders in the American theater. Although WOOLF provided opportunities, Albee eventually came to see the play as an albatross of sorts. In a program for a production at the Almeida in the UK, he stated: “The play has hung about my neck like a shining medal of some sort.”
THE WORLD OF THE PLAY Throughout WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF, Albee comments on politics in America and the illusion of the American Dream. Although we often look back to the early 1960s through the rosy view of JFK’s Camelot, at that time America was faced with rising political tension and change. The Cold War continued to create fear and anxiety for everyday Americans and the play opened under the shadow of the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962. The threat of nuclear war was quite real. International tensions were also being played out in the Space Race, as the United States and the USSR competed for scientific dominance. The early 1960s also saw the beginning of second-wave feminism, which challenged the role of women in the workplace and in the home. Deep cultural changes were underway nationwide with the advent of the Civil Rights movement. Albee admits that he named Nick after President Nikita Krushchev of the Soviet Union, while George and Martha clearly refer to our first American President and his wife. The tensions of the world around the characters are also being played out in a living room in New Carthage.

Triad Stage is very proud of the name of our theater building — The Pyrle Theater — made possible by a generous donation by Tobee and Leonard Kaplan in honor of Tobee’s mother, Pyrle Gibson.
Pyrle Gibson (1909-2000) was a woman with a great sense of humor, who found goodness in all people and beauty in the world around her. Her family always came first in her life and with them she shared her love of theater, music and the thrill of sports. The theater is named for her in loving memory by the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the Kaplan family with whom she shared her love, wisdom and joy of life.

Triad Stage began as a dream... Triad Stage is rooted in the heart of the Piedmont of North Carolina. From its home in downtown Greensboro, Triad Stage explores stories and ideas to engage with its audience and through that engagement enliven its community. The theater is a laboratory of curiosity, creativity and collaboration, and seeks to play an active role in the conversations of its region and beyond. Triad Stage began as a dream. After a nationwide search, Co-founders Preston Lane and Richard Whittington selected Greensboro as the home for a new theater. Along with community supporters, they undertook the three-year task of opening Triad Stage. Transforming the long empty historic Montgomery Ward store, into a world-class theater center now called The Pyrle Theater, Triad Stage began its engagement with the audiences of Greensboro and beyond in January 2002 with Tennessee Williams’ modern classic Suddenly Last Summer. In 2008, Triad Stage finished a second round of renovations to The Pyrle, creating the UpStage Cabaret performance Space and the Sloan Rehearsal Hall. In 2011, Triad Stage purchased a building to serve as the theater’s production and warehouse facility. In 2013, Triad Stage expanded programming to the Hanesbrands Theatre in downtown Winston-Salem, where its original adaptation of A Christmas Carol still performs.

Guided by its Core Values, Triad Stage seeks to build empathy bridges to heal historic divisions. It does not take a partisan position, but is, instead, a Vitally Welcoming theater that encourages conversations, questioning and dialogue. It celebrates the unique Southern Voice of an ever-changing region. Its focus remains firmly on its community, handmaking its work locally for its community. Triad Stage’s organizational structure is based on the led collaboration at the heart of its artistic process. Rejecting traditional hierarchical business structures, Triad Stage embraced a new Collaborative Corps structure. Led by Producing Artistic Director Preston Lane and a Producing Team, the Creative Company now works together as co-producers of their work in the community.
