Local actors celebrate fashion

The Beaufort Theater Company performed to a packed house at USCB’s Center for the Arts  in Nora and Delia Ephron’s Love, Loss and What I Wore based on the book by Ilene Beckerman. Local actors included Andrea Drake, Edna Crews, Brittney Heller, Angie Brafford, Anne Helm, Heather Szeder, Suzanne Larson, Shawn Sproatt, Magan Blackmon, Kay Owens, Jennifer Joyce, Jessica Lendi Dickson, Tracy Smith and Chanel Gish. Under Gail Westerfield’s creative direction, the cast performed the comedy about women’s clothing as metaphors of their lives in a full-scale stage production.

Proceeds from the show benefitted Citizens Opposed to Domestic Abuse (CODA). Also benefiting from the play’s run was the Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA).  Theatre attendees were asked to bring one or more articles of gently worn women’s clothing to donate to the CAPA Closet Thrift Store.

Additionally, Janet Louise Wickman Gregory displayed her vintage dress collection to the audience before the show. She brought 120 years of fashions from six generations of women in her family, all named Louise.

The production was the perfect excuse for a Girls Night Out, and all who attended thoroughly enjoyed the scrapbook of vignettes dedicated to women and their clothing. What’s not to love about that?

"I love Wendy Pollitzer’s writing. Her instincts are remarkable, her nose for truth infallible. I can’t pick up a journal or magazine that she’s written for without going straight to the table of contents in search of her piece. What I think is so interesting about her work is that she really believes in what she’s doing, in getting it right. She’s very, very good. "— Pat Conroy (Prince of Tides, South of Broad) 1945-2016
