This collection of stories is based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman, as well as recollections of the Ephrons’ friends. Honored with a 2010 Drama Desk Award, Love, Loss, and What I Wore, according to press notes, "uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to."
“I’m thrilled to bring these talented stars to the Rep’s stage to recant these very moving, funny and satirical stories by the talented Ephron sisters,” said Rick Lombardo, San Jose Rep’s artistic director, in a statement. “Our audiences are very fortunate to be treated to four of the five actresses who starred in this show in New York City, and we’re also delighted to welcome back Sandra Tsing Loh to the Rep’s stage.”

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
