It is an odyssey that takes this wife, mother, teacher, and writer into a life outside conventional marriage and motherhood, a life 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? Act II consists of performer Liz Stanton being joined by a special guest on stage for a discussion with the audience about the many choices women make throughout life, consciously and unconsciously.
