‘Love, Loss, and What I Wore’ by Flying Anvil Theatre to benefit Choice Health Network

Flying Anvil Theatre’s performances in June of “Love, Loss, and What I Wore” will raise funds for Positively Living & Choice Health Network and the theatre to help make up revenue lost over the past year because of the pandemic.

The highly acclaimed play, written by Nora and Delia Ephron, is based on the book by Ilene Beckerman and features monologues and ensemble pieces about women, clothes and memories. It will be Flying Anvil Theatre’s first in-person event of 2021, and tickets for the June 23-27 performances will be limited to allow for social distancing. The play will feature Carol Mayo Jenkins, Laura Beth Wells, Nancy Duckles, Eileen Conway and Jayne Morgan.

“We appreciate Flying Anvil Theatre including us in this event and supporting our mission,” said Steve Jenkins, chief executive officer of Positively Living & Choice Health Network. “We serve East Tennessee’s most vulnerable individuals and families affected by HIV, homelessness, mental illness, substance use and disabilities. The pandemic has taken a considerable toll, and we invite the community to take part in this event and show support to our nonprofit and the theatre.”

Flying Anvil Theatre, located at 1300 Rocky Hill Road in West Knoxville, will present the play with 7:30 p.m. shows on Wednesday-Saturday, June 23-26, and a 2 p.m. performance on Sunday, June 27.

Tickets are available now at https://www.flyinganviltheatre.com/tickets. General admission tickets are $50, and “Bridge the Gap” philanthropy tickets that include an additional donation are available for $75. Additionally, tickets for a VIP cocktail hour before the Saturday evening show are $100. All proceeds benefit Choice Health Network and Flying Anvil Theatre.

The theatre will use enhanced cleaning procedures, and masks are required when not eating or drinking.
