Love, Loss and What I Wore
Following a series of critically acclaimed sell out performances DUCTAC is reprising the comic smash hit play Love, Loss, and What I Wore written by the late Nora Ephron (writer of When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle) and her sister Delia, and based on the popular book by Ilene Beckerman
Like the book, Love, Loss and What I Wore uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women will be able to relate to.
The show is a delightful scrapbook of stories about unfortunate prom dresses, the traumatic lighting in fitting rooms, high heels, short skirts and the existential state of having nothing to wear. Accessorizing these tales - which are mostly comic but often sad or sentimental too - are the mothers who disapprove, the men who disappear and the sisters who've got your back.
The show has been produced on six continents and DUCTAC's production marks the premiere of this work in the UAE. The show was initially presented in 2008 at Guild Hall in East Hampton, New York. It has won the 2010 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience as well as the 2010 Broadway.com Audience Award for Favourite New Off- Broadway Play.
Previous cast members include Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Chenoweth, Tyne Daly, Glenn Close and Rosie O'Donnell. The four fantastic performers who will star in the Dubai production are all professional actresses who have chosen to make Dubai their home.
