Calliope Auditions: Love, Loss and What I Wore
Calliope announces auditions for Love, Loss and What I Wore, a comedy by Nora and Delia Ephron.
Based on the bestselling book by Ilene Beckerman, this 2010 Drama Desk Award-winning play focuses on the nostalgic power of women’s clothing. A cast of five women entertains the audience with funny, wistful, and endearing memories about families and loved ones through the prism of their closets. Like a long heart-to-heart chat with a best friend over coffee, the conversations meander from a bittersweet story of a stepmother wearing the same style bathrobe as her husband’s late wife, to a couple’s musings about what they wore on their wedding day, to a rant about loathing the need to carry a purse, and includes odes to black clothing, cowboy boots, and outfits that makes mothers cringe.
