Colonial Players to address dressing in ‘Love, Loss, and What I Wore’

Funny, wistful, and heart-to-heart stories about the nostalgic power of women’s clothing.

The Colonial Players, Inc. of Annapolis, Maryland is pleased to announce their upcoming summer production of Nora and Delia Ephron’s Love, Loss, and What I Wore, directed by Robin Schwartz.

Love, Loss, and What I Wore follows a collection of stories about the nostalgic power of women’s clothing. A diverse cast of women tell funny, wistful, and universal memories about their families and loved ones through the prism of their closets.

The throughline is narrated by Gingy, a wise older woman who reminisces about what she wore at milestones in her life. Like a long heart-to-heart with your best friend over coffee, the conversation meanders from odes to black clothing to cowboy boots and outfits that make mothers cringe. Love, Loss, and What I Wore is a reflection on the joys and challenges of our common female experience.
