“Love, Loss and What I Wore” will be Isis’s initial 2013 production. The Ephron sisters — well-known Nora and Delia — wrote a series of monologues based on Ilene Beckerman’s 1995 book of the same title.

The subjects range from relationships to wardrobes, and women’s clothing serves as a time capsule of her life.

Nora Ephron wrote the introduction to Beckerman’s book and felt attached from the moment she read it. Eventually she and her sister contacted more than 100 friends and asked questions that were woven into the monologues.

Prom dresses, mini-skirts, sweaters, purses and dressing rooms are all part of the backdrop for an evening of humor and poignant thoughts about today’s society from the female perspective.

The cast of five characters will be Suzanne Avalon, Ann DeWolfe, Jeri Greene, Emily Heebner and Christina Lee Nordella.

The performances will be 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 1, and Saturday, March 2, at the Rainbow Inn in Idyllwild.

Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at the door, or online at

There is also a Dinner Theatre Package available for $45, which includes a three-course meal at the Gastrognome Restaurant and a ticket to the play with preferred seating.
