Catch Hit Nora Ephron Play in Dubai!
If clothes could talk...

A touching comedy play from the woman behind When Harry Met Sally is coming to Dubai!

Love Loss and What I Wore was written by the late Nora Ephron, who also created Sleepless in Seattle, and is based on the bestselling book by Ilene Beckerman. Like the novel, Love, Loss and What I Wore shares an assortment of funny and often poignant tales, each connected by their associations with the memories triggered by clothes and accessories.

Initially presented in New York six years ago, it's now the second-longest-running show off-Broadway. Love Loss and What I Wore has won numerous accolades, including 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 have included Sarah Jessica Parker, Rosie O’Donnell, Kristin Chenoweth, Glenn Close and Tyne Daly, while the four fantastic women who’ll star in the Dubai production are all professional actresses who’ve made the UAE their home.

Stories range from the funny to the disturbing, from ill-fated prom dresses and changing-room trauma to high heels, short skirts and the existential state of having nothing to wear. From disapproving mothers to vanishing men and the sisters who’ve got your back, it’s crammed with memorable characters who’ll linger in the mind long after the curtain falls.

Gather the girls, grab a hanky and go along for what’s sure to be a memorable experience.
