Susaan Jamshidi

Liz Lauren

When: Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Nov. 19 2017
Price: $10-$44
Chicago playwright Rohina Malik gracefully balances the political and the personal in her intelligent, moving 2016 play, first produced and directed by Ann Filmer at Berwyn's 16th Street Theatre and now being revived at the Goodman. The story, about a talented Iraqi refugee grappling with her past, is the perfect vehicle for Susaan Jamshidi, an actor equally adept at comedy and serious drama—though Malik’s gift for dialogue and storytelling practically guarantees Jamshidi won't be the last actor to shine in this role. None of the play’s intimacy is lost in the Goodman’s considerably larger performing space, and Filmer's crisp direction ensures that none of Malik’s points get blunted. —Jack Helbig
