Love, Loss and What I Wore follows fragmented stories about the nostalgic power of women’s clothing. A starry cast of five 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. 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. This is a play of monologues and ensemble pieces about women, clothes and memory covering all the important subjects—mothers, prom dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses and why we only wear black. Based on the best-selling book by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron.

With wit, charm, and chutzpah, Ann Landers provided millions of Americans their daily dose of advice, etiquette, and encouragement. And for nearly half a century, one Eppie Lederer was Ann Landers. In this warm and funny one-woman play, drawn from her life and letters, Eppie comes to life on stage as she writes perhaps her most challenging—and personal—column. Esther Pauline “Eppie” Lederer, better know as Ann Landers, took over the Chicago Sun-Times’s ‘Ask Ann Landers’ column in 1955 after the death of its creator, Ruth Crowley. During the next 47 years, readers across the country wrote to Ann with questions about everything from sex and marriage, to how to properly hang toilet paper. Questions you may not feel comfortable discussing with your priest, friends, or even your spouse could be shared with Ann Landers. Lederer also weighed in on the more complex issues of the day, including politics, abortion and homosexuality. She became a media celebrity, yet still answered every letter herself, as long as it had a return address, and her column was enjoyed by millions along with their morning cup of coffee. This 2006 one-woman show, written by David Rambo is set in 1975 and was based on Lederer’s letters and life stories.
