 The Woman Who Was Me

“There is a kiss we want with our whole lives,” writes Rumi.

Lanie is kissed by a stranger in a garden. This kiss arouses Lanie’s desire to confront who she is and what is most dear to her. This magical play reveals what we are willing to sacrifice to live authentically, and how the choices we make transform us in unimaginable ways.

Performed by Liz Stanton*
