Director, Claire Simba, shared "I am honored to return to SRT and to LFTG with a co-production of Charlayne Woodard's touching one- woman play, "Neat". Combining spoken word, dance and visual arts, it is a truly wholesome experience that we are proud to offer to our audience - like nothing they've seen before. I am so thrilled to share the wonderful work that our team - on and off the stage - have put together to retell this heartwarming coming of age story. We invite you to come and laugh, cry and dream with us, as we share this beautiful love story."

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 means to cherish life.
(Includes some adult language and themes)
