Beschreibung von Audible
Charlayne Woodard's full-length stage monologue of her youthful impressions of her retarded aunt Beneatha, who seems to have perished young when she tried to fly off a precipice, begins at an amazing pitch of energy, which she more amazingly sustains throughout. She enthralls the listener - as writer and performer - with consummate theatricality, expertly orchestrating tensions, rhythms, humor, and pathos. She manages to make experiences peculiar to middle-class African-American Baby Boomers seem familiar to Americans of other backgrounds. The overall excellence of this production almost completely obscures its flaws: a manipulative, sentimental script and a performance that almost tries too hard.
In Neat, writer/performer Charlayne Woodard shares her memories of growing up black in America in the '60s and '70s. The play focuses around the life of Woodard's Aunt Beneatha, Neat, who was mistakenly fed camphor oil as a baby, resulting in permanent brain damage. Alternating between Neat's home in Savannah, GA and Albany, NY, where Woodard was raised, stories of family and of time spent with Neat are weaved together with touching results.
