THE RESURRECTION OF ALICE
Written and Performed
by Actor/Author Perri Gaffney
(Based upon her novel by the same name)
Fifteen year old Alice looks forward to graduating from high school in 1948 and attending college on the scholarship she has earned. But her plans are devastated when she learns that she must honor her parent's secret marriage arrangements.
Alice is a tribute to the power of nurturing and healing that can cause a broken spirit to be reborn. The Resurrection of Alice is perfect for ages 12 and up. It's an adventure that informs, enlightens, excites and inspires through characters that will stay with you long after their story ends.
Perri Gaffney is not only a well respected actor (brought to Ashland for her wonderful performance as Mrs. Dickson in INTIMATE APPAREL at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival) but she has created a one woman show based on her novel, The Resurrection of Alice. The one-woman show is inspired by the countless forgotten lives of young, black girls who found themselves in arranged marriages to men that were usually community pillars, financially comfortable and old enough to be their grandfathers.
