Monson Arts Council to stage "Love, Loss and What I Wore"

The Monson Arts Council has announced its fall theater production, Love, Loss, and What I Wore, a play written by Nora and Delia Ephron based on the 1995 book of the same name by Ilene Beckerman. The performances will be in the Unitarian Universalist Church in Monson on September 29 (8 pm), September 30 (3 pm and 8 pm), and October 1 (3pm). Tickets are $10 for members and $13 for others and can be purchased online here.

Love, Loss, and What I Wore is organized as a series of monologues and uses a rotating cast of five principal women. The show has been produced on six continents and more than eight countries. It began a national tour in the United States in September 2011 in Chicago. The subject matter of the monologues includes women's relationships and wardrobes and at times the interaction of the two, using the female wardrobe as a time capsule of a woman's life. In Variety, Marilyn Stasio called it "a bittersweet meditation on the joys and tribulations of women's lives, reflected through the prism of their clothes".

Nora Ephron wrote the introduction to Beckerman's eponymous 1995 book, which she immediately thought had dramatic possibilities. Beckerman's memoir takes as its departure the clothing worn at pivotal times of her life and serves as the foundation for the show. The Ephrons augmented this with a collection of similarly themed stories presented by four additional characters. The recollections about the clothing prompt the women's memories about their mothers, boyfriends, husbands, ex-husbands, sisters and grandchildren.
