Various media and platforms offer us opportunities to present historical evidence and narratives. To what extent can actors perform history? Does history belong on stage? On this episode, we explore these questions in the context of a recent play inspired by the events of World War II as we sit down with Arthur Reese, technical director of the North Carolina Central University Theatre, and CEO and Director of the non-profit Never Stop Productions, Sean Callot.
