Cast members from the Croswell Opera House’s upcoming production of “Love, Loss and What I Wore” will read excerpts from the play during several book discussion events taking place throughout the area in March.
“Love, Loss and What I Wore” is based on a novel by Ilene Beckerman and was adapted for the stage by Nora and Delia Ephron. It takes the form of a series of vignettes, told by six women, about clothing and accessories and the sometimes funny, sometimes poignant memories they trigger.
Several book clubs around the area have been participating in a Community Read of the book in the weeks leading up to the Croswell’s production of the play, which opens March 21.
Discussions are scheduled for the following dates and locations:
- 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 3, at the Manchester District Library, 912 City Road, Manchester.
- 7 p.m. Friday, March 6, at the Adrian District Library, 143 E. Maumee St., Adrian.
- 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 10, at the Tecumseh District Library, 215 N. Ottawa St., Tecumseh.
- 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 16, at the Stair District Library, 228 W. Main St., Morenci.
The Morenci library has arranged for a speakerphone chat with author Ilene Beckerman as part of the March 16 discussion.
All of the library discussions are free and open to the public.
The Croswell’s production of “Love, Loss and What I Wore” runs March 21-22 and March 27-29. Tickets range from $10 to $25, and group discounts are available. For more information, call 517-264-7469 or visit croswell.org/purchase-tickets.
