Going Solo Festival: "Neat"

February 9, 2011

Feb. 10-March 6
Indiana Repertory Theatre

Last year, the Indiana Repertory Theatre experimented with its schedule by presenting three full-length, one-actor plays. Apparently, audiences embraced the idea, and so the Going Solo Fest returns.

The constant is the teaming of actress Milicent Wright with a play by Charlayne Woodard. This time, it’s “Neat,” a sequel to last season’s “Pretty Fire” (the one I’m still kicking myself for missing). This one brings the character to her teen years, dealing with high school, civil rights, and life with her disabled aunt.

Also in the fest, Ryan Artzberger plays a first-time dad in Ken Weitzman’s “Fire in the Garden” (Feb. 12-27), and James Devita stars in his own play, “In Acting Shakespeare” (Feb. 19-March 13), telling of his journey from fisherman to classical actor. Details on all the Going Solo shows here
