Back by popular demand, an encore performance of "Love, Loss and What I Wore" will take the stage at UUCWI in Freeland, Saturday, September 23 at 7:00 pm. Join us for a unique theatrical experience about women and their relationship with outfits, shoes, handbags, and accessories. The South Whidbey venue is hosting a one-night-only revival of the Whidbey Playhouse hit from this past season.
This beautifully written play by superstar sisters Nora Ephron (Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally, and Julie and Julia) and Delia Ephron (You’ve Got Mail, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) is based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman. It features a scrapbook of stories, presented readers-theatre style, about unfortunate prom dresses, the traumatic lighting in fitting rooms, high heels, short skirts and the existential state of having nothing to wear. Accessorizing these tales are the mothers who disapprove, the men who disappear, and the sisters who’ve got your back. Directed and produced by Sue Riney, and featuring six local actresses – Gaye Litka, Katie Jones, Susie Thompson, Nicole Bouvion, Dianna Gruenwald, and Rebecca Leonard - this is a laugh, love, cry, feel-good sort of play to which both women and men can relate.
The special presentation will take place at The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Whidbey Island, 20103 SR-525, Freeland, at 7:00 pm. No advance reservations; suggested donation of $25 at the door. Please be aware that Love, Loss and What I Wore contains adult themes and language.
