“Neat” A Virtual Performance

February 3 @ 6:00 pm 8:30 pm CST

This event is free! Please RSVP @ the link below to be sent the show invite!
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Back by popular demand, Renaissance Theaterworks presents NEAT with Marti Gobel reprising her tour-de-force role!
NEAT is a magical, often humorous, coming-of-age story. Based in the oral traditions of the African Diaspora, award-winning playwright, Charlayne Woodard is a modern-day griot. NEAT is based on the playwright’s lived experience. As an infant, Woodard’s beloved Aunt Beneatha (Neat), is denied treatment at the local “white” hospital, leaving her with permanent brain damage. But Neat possesses an enormous heart. With love and simplicity, Neat teaches young Charlayne to embrace black pride and cherish life through the turbulent 1960s and 1970s.

Please RSVP to get the Link for “NEAT”
