LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE
by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron
based on the book by Ilene Beckerman
directed by Vivienne Benesch

An intimate collection of funny and poignant stories that EVERYONE can relate to. Using clothing and accessories—and the memories they trigger—these monologues and stories cover everything from deciding on prom dresses, hating purses, and why we eventually default to wearing all black, all the time.

Starring award-winning special guests Marin Hinkle, Camryn Manheim, and Debra Messing, as well as PlayMakers resident company members Julia Gibson, Kathryn Hunter-Williams, and Tia James.

Presented by Women’s Point of View
