  Miss Lillian Gish – Stageography Miss Lillian Gish – Stageography As per “Dorothy and Lillian Gish” by Lillian Gish Back to Lillian Gish Home page Back to Lillian Gish Home page Back to Lillian Gish Home page Back to Lillian Gish Home page In August 1948, Lillian acted in J.M.Barrie’s The Legend of Leonora. The play drew its inspiration from another Barrie play, What Every Woman Knows. “The complexity of a woman’s nature is beyond man’s simple powers of comprehension.” The story-line was simple: a bachelor, terrified of facing women, finds himself with seven different women. Each has her own personality; an unspeakable darling, a politician, a comedian, a coquette, a murderess, a mother and a clinging woman. When bachelor is asked to select the woman most suitable to his personality, he learns that all seven are actually the same woman, and she is a marriageable widow.
