Kate Chopin, classic feminist author of The Awakening, composed the short story "Lilacs". In it, Parisian actress Adrienne Farival returns every year to the convent where she grew up. One day, Mother Superior, having heard of Adrienne's indiscretions, refuses to allow her to enter. Like her protagonist, Chopin struggled with her own lifestyle choices. Liza Ross fits Chopin's writing style like a glove, bringing languor and sensuality to the performance. Her voice, a warm alto, feels friendly, almost light-hearted. With expertise, Ross navigates varied characters' voices.
