"Right Of Way" documentary stage play

Heard on WVTF-FM this morning of the play being staged this weekend at Virginia Tech about guy who rode his bike everywhere and was killed by a drunk driver. Segment should be available online, and the playwright says every line is from family and friends, nothing fictional. I'm on my way to go hiking, so search for yourselves.
