Playcrafters Presents a Staged Reading of "Love, Loss, and What I Wore" on August 24th and 25th

Playcrafters

Playcrafters Theatre Company of Bellport presents a staged reading of "Love, Loss, and What I Wore," by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, on Saturday, August 24th at 8:00pm and Sunday, August 25th at 3:00pm at the Boys & Girls Club of the Bellport Area, 471 Atlantic Ave., Bellport. "Love, Loss and What I Wore" follows fragmented stories about the nostalgic power of women’s clothing. A starry cast of women enrobed in chic black sit on stools and tell funny, wistful and universal memories about their families and loved ones through the prism of their closets. The through line is narrated by Gingy, a wise older woman who reminisces about what she wore at milestones in her life—complete with sketches of the styles. Like a long heart-to-heart with your best friend over coffee, the conversation meanders from a bittersweet story of a stepmother wearing the same style bathrobe as her husband’s late wife (to the dismay of the children) to a couple’s musings of what they wore on their wedding day to a rant about loathing the need to carry a purse. With odes to black clothing, cowboy boots and outfits that makes mothers cringe, "Love, Loss and What I Wore" is unabashedly girly—in a good way. Directed by John Simpson.
