LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE was written by superstar movie-writer sisters Nora and Delia Ephron. Nora wrote the screenplays for Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally, and Heartburn, among others. Delia Ephron wrote such favorite films as You’ve Got Mail and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Their play is based on the best-selling book of the same name by Ilene Beckerman and has played to sell-out audiences on six continents and more than eight countries.
The play employs items of women’s clothing and accessories in order to trigger stories that are funny, startling, and emotional. The result is an intimate collection of stories that every woman (and the men who love them) can relate to. The all-female cast is led by Linda Callahan as Gingy, the play’s central storyteller. She is ably supported by actresses Lindsey Pullum, Kristy Rucker, Holly Sauerbrunn, and Mary Stone, who play a wide variety of roles. The play does include mature subject matter.
The TDW production will be directed by Rose Vanden Eynden, who is making her Drama Workshop directorial debut. Ms. Vanden Eynden says she wanted to direct this play because “It is filled with hilarious, poignant stories told from the perspective of real women. To me, this play is a celebration of who women truly are – both magnificent and flawed creatures who need to tell their stories and who deserve an audience to hear them. I hope people who come to see this show will enjoy all of these marvelous ladies and their stories, and that they will see their own truths reflected back to them.”
