Love, Loss and What I Wore
by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron
based on the book by Ilene Beckerman
directed by Donna Daniels
Rehearsals: September 26 – November 2, 2022
Performances: November 3 – 5, 10 – 12, at 7:30 pm (6 performances – additional performances may be added)
SYNOPSIS: This incredibly humorous and touching play explores the lives of women through 28 interwoven characters who share their memories of love and loss as framed through the clothes they wore. From wedding dress to miniskirts, the female obsession with black, and the hunt for the perfect purse, LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE cheers and jeers the idiosyncrasies of the female experience.
We are seeking 5 women, ages 18 and over, who will assume various roles throughout the show. Actors must be able to create a variety of distinct characters, voices/dialects, and physicalities from once scene to another.
Auditions will be cold readings from the script and held by appointment only on the following days:
- Saturday, August 27, 10 am – 12 pm
- Sunday, August 28, 1 – 3 pm
- Monday, August 29, 7 – 9 pm (callbacks, if necessary)
