Playwright professor finds his creative home in Chapel Hill

Mark Perry is not a native North Carolinian. After years in the state he has fallen in love with the cast of characters surrounding him in the college town of Chapel Hill. The Dramatic Arts lecturer  has been teaching at UNC since 2005 where he started with a single class.  After a couple of years, he started teaching playwriting.
