When Dr. Becca Neal loses a patient after a routine procedure, she grieves much like the patient's family. 

Neal is a character in Love Alonea play by North Carolina native Deborah Salem Smith that shows the burden both patients and doctors bear after medical accidents. The play opens at UNC’s Paul Green Theatre tonight and runs through March 16. Host Frank Stasio talks with director Vivienne Benesch, UNC anesthesiologist Dr. Ty Bullard and actors Jenny Wales, Derrick L. Ivey and Patrick McHugh. 

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
