A very promising beginning. I look forward to seeing her next show to see where she's headed when she gets beyond the autobiographical.

Such energy to sustain for over an hour! Safiya is a real talent. The story is compelling and very real, and Safiya changes from character to character with ease and magic. I would definitely recommend this performance.
