The Mainstage Season Series returns to William Wood University(WWU) this week, as the University’s drama department will present a play comprised of a series of female monologues entitled “Love, Loss And What I Wore.” This week’s stage production will begin with the opening performance on Thursday, November 16 at Dulany Auditorium on the WWU campus.

A production that is at times both dramatic and funny, “Love, Loss And What I Wore” is a play that was written by Nora and Delia Ephron based on a 1995 bestselling book of the same name by Ilene Beckerman. It is organized as a series of monologues using a rotating cast of five principal women. The monologues and ensemble pieces about women, clothes and memory cover all the important subjects, including mothers, prom dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses and why we only wear black.
