The kiss of a stranger awakens the desire and creativity of a middle-aged wife, mother, teacher, and writer; launching her on a journey exploring a life outside conventional marriage, motherhood, and sexual appetite. Her identity fragments as she embarks on a sexual odyssey filled with risk, questioning, and confused boundaries. In wandering, how can she put down roots, find a voice, and craft a new story of herself and those with whom she shares kinship?
Act 2 is you! Liz Stanton will be joined by different special guests at each performance of The Woman Who Was Me to have a conversation with the audience about the many choices women make throughout life, consciously and unconsciously. A host will lead the dialogue among the special guest, Liz, and audience members. The conversation will be based on themes within the play, including creativity, self-love, motherhood, identity, marriage, and sex/desire/fulfillment.
