Longtime arts patron Joan Gillings is making a generous donation to Playmakers Repertory Theater and the UNC department of dramatic art.

It’s the largest single gift to UNC performing arts by any living individual.

Here to talk about the gift and how it shapes the future of dramatic arts at UNC is Vivienne Benesch, the producing artistic director of Playmakers.
