Love, Loss and What I Wore

Based on Ilene Beckerman’s 1995 memoir of the same name, the play offers a chorus of women’s voices speaking about everything from first bras and prom dresses to love, same-sex marriage, motherhood, divorce, grief, rape and cancer. Love, Loss and What I Wore digs into the arcane algebra of female fashion, but there’s clearly more to it than women’s clothing. Marcel Proust wrote Remembrance of Things Past after the taste of a pastry unlocked his buried past. In the Ephrons’ play, clothing is the key. The memories it releases are bittersweet, hilarious, disturbing and all too human.
