Pellissippi State Community College will celebrate women with the upcoming play “Love, Loss and What I Wore,” by Nora and Delia Ephron.

The play, co-produced with DuckEars Theatre Company, will be at the Clayton Performing Arts Center, 10915 Hardin Valley Road, at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 10-11 and 17-18 and 2 p.m., Feb. 12 and 19.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for seniors and students. Visit www.pstcc.edu/tickets or purchase tickets at the door. All of the ticket proceeds will benefit the Pellissippi State Foundation’s scholarship fund for theatre students.

“This is a simple but powerful play that showcases the stories of five women who recall seminal moments of their lives through the filter of their clothes,” said Theatre professor Charles R. Miller. “These monologues showcase the voice of women.”

This compelling dramedy discusses everything important: mothers, prom dresses, buying bras, and why women wear so much black. The play, directed by faculty member Steven McBride, will star Chevy Anz, Nancy Duckles, Kathy May Tallent, Jessie Holder Toutelotte and Deborah Webb. Additional cast and crew will include Pellissippi State students and faculty.

“Love, Loss and What I Wore,” based on the book by Ilene Beckerman, is part of The Arts at Pellissippi State, which features cultural activities for the community — ranging from music and theatre to international celebrations, lectures and the fine arts.
