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 a kinship?
Women’s Voices, Women’s Choices
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.
