Charlayne Woodard

Published by Dramatists Play Service

0 Male 1 Female

In the oral traditions of West Africa and the African diaspora, Charlayne Woodard is a modern-day griot

On a bare stage, this magnificent storyteller spins her own exquisite real-life remembrance of her brain damaged aunt, Neat, and the profound change she brought to Charlayne's life

Neat, with her enormous love, energy, simplicity and magnificent clarity, teaches the young Charlayne what it is to cherish life

A magical, compelling, personal portrait of a young woman's coming of age, Neat is the story of an urban African-American girl bursting into adulthood, experiencing first love, and embracing both black-pride and feminism

An evening of pure joy, compelling insight and hopefulness, Neat is an inspiration for every family
