Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Visit IndyBuzz's sister site, http://www.provocate.org/, which provides a context for the clusters of the events discussed in IndyBuzz.

March 13-14, 20-21, 27-28 — Try to see eye to eye with "Oleana"

To mark its second official season, The Theater Within responds to the critical acclaim earned in 2008 by such productions as The Laramie Project and This is How it Goes by taking on one of the great minds of the modern stage, David Mamet.

When: March 13, 14, 20, 21, 27 and 28 at 8 p.m.

Where: The Theater Within is located at 1125 Spruce St., just four blocks east of Fountain Square along Prospect Street immediately south of the KFC and is an outreach program of The Church Within.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Show dates are March 13, 14, 20, 21, 27 and 28 at 8 p.m. For reservations call (317) 850-4665.

The first in the theater's Awaiting Illumination series, Oleanna introduces John, a well-intentioned but conflicted college professor anticipation of receiving tenure by the university review committee, and Carol, a troubled young student trying to shed light on the value of her instructor's sometimes confounding use of language.

Words and Action fly at the speed of human thought, frenetically rushed one moment and constricted the next, rhythmically restated for emphasis or dissolving in shifts of focus, whether intentional or calculated. The New York Times foresaw provocation of heated debate in the wake of Oleanna's original run and Time Magazine considered it "one of the ten best plays of 1992... reason enough to cheer for the future of the theatre." The Theater Within brings back Looking Within, the participatory forum which engages artists and audiences following each performance.
