God's Gypsy explores the romantic and controversial life of the 16th-century Spanish mystic who became a Catholic Church reformer before she became a saint. Adapted from the award-winning Barbara Mujica's well-researched 2007 novel Sister Teresa, Coco Blignaut wrote and stars in the play, which follows Teresa from her days as a spoiled young girl sent to a convent, through her intense spiritual awakening, to her work as an influential theologian devoted to mental prayer, while also revealing her secret Jewish ancestry, risky political moves during the Spanish Inquisition and more.

I saw this in previews and it was too long by 45 minutes to an hour. The night I went it was 2 1/2 hours long, without intermission. In fact, it was apparent the performer ran out steam as the first half was rather physical with her running all over the stage. I understand completely the need for preview performances, but I was disappointed the actress had to stop so frequently to check her notes to see what the next line was. It was her play, after all. That, too, was a clue the play ran way too long. The play is a biography of the performer's life expressed through the paintings she makes on stage. (Personally, I always find it ingratiating to hear a middle-aged actress speak in that annoying squeal of a child.) It's obvious she is no painter. Each finished piece is horrible. This play needs a great deal of work. Perhaps it will get there by the time it officially opens.
