The show runs through March 25. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays, or by appointment. Stutz Art Space is a not-for-profit visual art center on the first floor of the Stutz Business Center.

Going Solo Festival returns to the IRT

The Indiana Repertory Theater brings back to its stage the popular hit event, Going Solo Festival. “Neat” opened in mid-February and will be followed by “Fire in the Garden,” and “In Acting Shakespeare.”

Millicent Wright performs in “Neat,” by Charlayne Woodard. In this sequel to “Pretty Fire,” teenaged Charlayne encounters boys, high school, civil rights and her own vivid imagination, all while learning to live with her disabled aunt, Neat, who’s life greatly affects Charlayne’s own. This is a powerful story of the profound change Neat brought to Charlayne with her enormous love, energy, simplicity and magnificent clarity.

“Neat” will be on stage now through March 6. Ticket prices vary based on the show, date and time.
