“Pretty Fire”

Feb. 9-28
Indiana Repertory Theatre

Charlyne Woodard has had recurring roles on “ER”
and “Law and Order: SVU,” but she made a theatrical name for herself as author and performer of a series of one-person
plays, including “Neat,” “In Real Life” and her first, “Pretty Fire.” For this new production
of “Pretty Fire,” the words are still Woodard’s, but they will be given life by the endearing Millicent
Wright.

The telling of five stories from Woodard’s childhood, “Pretty Fire” promises to be funny,
harrowing and moving. Both the LA Drama Critics and the NAACP named it best play of the year when it was originally staged.
Here, it will be the first of three full-length, one-person plays being presented at the IRT under the banner “Going
Solo.” Details here.
