Based on the bestselling book by Ilene Beckerman, Love, Loss and What I Wore is a hilarious and touching tapestry of monologues and ensemble pieces about women, clothes, and memories covering all the important subjects—mothers, prom dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses, and why we only wear black.


What could be better than enjoying a glass of wine or beer while watching Love, Loss? Nothing, that's what! Be sure to bring your pocket book, because we will have a cash bar available at the Drish House along with our usual tasty concessions.

The Wardrobe

Theatre is a collaboration of artists in many different ways. Designers for sets, lights, costumes work together with actors and directors to create something truly unique. SecondStage’s production of Love, Loss, and What I Wore gets to add another amazing element to its production: original artwork by Bridget Winder. 


As Gingy takes us through the story of her life, each piece of clothing is depicted in a one-of-a-kind painting created by Bridget Winder, a regular on the Theatre Tuscaloosa stage and renowned visual artist. 

Theatre Tuscaloosa is excited that SecondStage will be returning to the Historic Drish House to present Love, Loss, & What I Wore. One of the most historically rich buildings in West Alabama, the Historic Drish House has been lovingly restored and this beautiful antebellum plantation-style venue is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Learn more about the venue here.
