ענבל לורי מרתקת ב"האישה שיכולתי להיות", מחזה שהיא גם כתבה. במבט רטרוספקטיבי על חייה במשך שלושה עשורים היא מנסה לפענח מול הקהל מדוע בעצם הפכה לכישלון. את האשמה היא תולה בבנות משפחתה- אמא, סבתא, דודה ואחות תאומה- שבגללן לא התפתחה לאישה שיכלה להיות. לורי, בוגרת בית הספר לאומניות בירושלים והסטודיו של ניסן נתיב, היא שחקנית קומית מרתקת עם חוש מצוין לקצב, ומצליחה ליצור קשר טוב עם הקהל

Lori zigzags herself successfully between each of her characters and characterizes each one of them with her own unique manner of speech, body-language and a rich, precise vocabulary. The writing is excellent and makes one laugh more than once or twice. It also arouses compassion that pulls at the strings of your heart. Her acting is also outstanding and for a moment you forget that there is only one slight young woman on stage…
" Inbal Lori is fascinating in "The Woman I could have been", a play that she herself wrote. In a retrospective look at her life- throughout it's three decades, she tries to decipher in front of the audience why she turned out a failure. She blames the female members of her family, her mother, grandmother, aunt and twin sister- because of them she never developed into the woman she could have been.
Lori is a graduate of The School of Arts in Jerusalem and The Studio of Nisan Nativ, she's a fascinating comedienne with a wonderful sense of rhythm, and communicates very well with her audience…. (Tzipi Sochat, "Ha'aretz - Gallery")
I don’t usually like mono-dramas, to me they seem anti-theatrical. How pleasant it was to discover 10 minutes after the show started that I was completely mistaken, half an hour later that I was in love and an hour later that I was sad it had to end. Lori solves the anti-theatrical problem of monodramas by portraying herself all the characters that surround her, with impressive comic and dramatic skills .
Shmulik Levi's direction guards the clean cut of the text and keeps the stage free for Lori's talents, and the wise yet simple beauty of the text she wrote.
