Love, Loss and What I Wore

Love, Loss, and What I Wore is a play written by Nora and Delia Ephron based on the 1995 book of the same name by Ilene Beckerman. It is organized as a series of monologues and uses a rotating cast of five principal women. The subject matter of the monologues includes women’s relationships and wardrobes and at times the interaction of the two, using the female wardrobe as a time capsule of a woman’s life.

Royal Canadian Theatre Company

Open Studio

A behind the scenes look at a rehearsal for Arsenic and Old Lace. A classic black-comedy and a Broadway hit starring Boris Karloff before it was adapted for film with Cary Grant. Two dotty sisters and their very scary and menacing nephew who comes to visit, complete with his crazy sidekick plastic surgeon. Bodies all over the place, the Panama canal being dug in the basement, another nephew who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, and a cop who wants to be a playwright – just a few of the zany happenings in this perfect Hallowe’en treat. Some slightly scary situations – suitable for older children. And you may win tickets to the October performance at the Surrey Arts Centre!
