The Loss World is a personal journey of growth and healing.
Based on journals written over the course of a few years.
It's not about forgetting ~ but remembering and learning to live in a new reality.
The Loss World began simply as a journal through grief ~
and inspired a play, an enhanced reading performance piece and a short film
The Loss World Monologues is available as a 80 minute one act stage play, to be performed in black box, or as a performance reading by multiple actors.
The original play was performed with 9 women, each on their separate journey as they moved through their grief and learned the value of love and personal strength. Based on the book and additional journal entries.
Although written for women, it is not gender exclusive.
