In her one-woman play,
Vocally, she is near perfection.
She presents to us a range of characters with strong contrasts in age, class and location as they share their experiences of how they are perceived by their peers. These characters have no relation or personal connection with each other, leaving us with sparse narrative and mixed messages as to what Ofori is trying to communicate.
Vocally, she is near perfection. Though a little improvement is needed in her projection, she creates authentic intimacy with the audience. Her eye contact is not threatening; instead she has an open presence, naturally making all of her characters incredibly sincere.
Her key problem is the one-dimensional dialogue throughout her performance. Filled with pop culture references, it overshadows Ofori’s attempts to break new ground and tackle the truth behind each of her characters’ social statuses and arguments. With clichéd, semi-philosophical quotes such as, “How do you find the time to live?" or “How do we fuel our creativity?” this script prevents Ofori from demonstrating her full potential.
