NORA EPHRON PLAY: ‘LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE’ @ THE GRANGE
(Friday/Saturdays, July 26/27, and Sunday July 28 @ 7:30 pm)
This screenplay written by Nora Ephron and her sister is based on the best selling book by Ilene Beckerman, as well as on the recollections of the Ephrons’ friends. The play uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that everyone can relate to. The play includes twenty paintings of outfits described in the play by local artist, Jackie Kempfer. “Love, Loss And What I Wore” has a cast of five women, four of whom form an ensemble that performs each night. The fifth role, that of “Gingy” who functions as the narrator, has a different actor for each performance. On July 26, Annette Mazzarella, on July 27, Pam Loew; and on closing night, Sunday, July 28 the role of Gingy will be played by Patty Monaco. The Actors Theater production of this play follows the model developed in the New York production: The actors will sit on stools, with the script on music stands in front of them. Some of the content is not suitable for younger children. Tickets are $10 and are available at Darvills Book Store on-line at www.orcasactors.com or at the door.
