The Edward King House recently announced the expansion of their theater program adding a new space referred to as “The Other Space” with their inaugural production of Love, Loss and What I Wore by Nora and Delia Ephron, based on the book by Ilene Beckerman.
The second floor ballroom has been converted to an additional theater space complimenting the already popular black box theater known as “The Studio”.
This new set up include a raised stage with black draping, full theatrical lighting and little bit of artistic tech to bring the imagery of the show to life.
Directed by Sharon Coleman who also participates as an actor, the show includes in its cast, Cindy Killavey, Michelle Brennan, Stephanie Reilly, Mary Pevear and back on the acting stage for the first time in more than twenty years, King House Director, Carmela Geer.
Love Loss and What I Wore is a collection of monologues and ensemble pieces about women, clothes and memory covering all of the important subjects – mothers, prom dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses, mothers and why we only wear black.
The show runs from Friday, April 5th to Sunday, April 14th. Tickets can be purchased for $12 online at www.edwardkinghouse.org or call for more information at 401-846-7426.
