Love, Loss, and What I Wore

City Circle Acting Company of Coralville

Women have an intense relationship with their wardrobes. An article of clothing can present the wearer’s psychology, politics, culture and phase of life. In Love, Loss, and What I Wore, writers Nora Ephron and her sister Delia capture the complex reasons for why women wear what they do. A cast of 12 women presents monologues about items of clothing that range from funny to sentimental to cringe-inducing.

This show ran for two years in New York’s Westside Theatre and won the 2010 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience. From Brownie uniforms to bras to track suits, audiences are guaranteed to see parts of themselves onstage. See it with a group of girlfriends and allow the performance to spark a discussion of what your wardrobe says about you.

The performance runs Feb. 14-16 at the Coralville Center for Performing Arts. For more information, visit
