The tale Perri Gaffney tells in this one-woman show is interesting enough: a poor African-American woman in the rural south abandons her dreams of college and true love when she's forced, in her late teens, into an arranged marriage. But it's Gaffney's gifts as a performer that really make the story come alive. With amazing grace, no props, and minimal set, this stage and TV veteran re-creates with compelling immediacy the world her protagonist inhabits—and all the people in it. A shape shifter of the first order, Gaffney delivers an almost two-hour-long drama that leaves us wanting more. —Jack Helbig
