Come One, Come All Productions is a new Melbourne/Naarm based production company striving to create opportunities and art on an all-inclusive/diverse stage. Love, Loss and What I Wore by Nora and Delia Ephron will be COCA’s first show. Adapted from Ilene Beckerman’s memoir of the same name, Love, Loss and What I Wore is a collection of monologues centred around clothing and the female experience, covering all the important subjects-mothers, dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses and why we only wear black. Typically performed with a cast of 5, artists will portray 30+ characters as they tell stories of pivotal moments in their lives, framed through the lens of the clothing they wore.
