Love and loss, before Facebook

The stage production of “The Loves of Elaine” will return to the Feichter Studio at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 18-19 and at 2 p.m. Aug. 13 and 20 at the Haywood Arts Regional Theatre in Waynesville.

When her mother, Elaine, passed away a few years ago, Lyn Donley discovered to her surprise a stash of love letters — but not from her father. These were from a wide variety of fantastic men that were all in love with Elaine revealing a whole new side to the woman she knew. In the production, Donley will be acting out the story alongside C.J. Deering.

Tickets are $10. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 828.456.6322 or visit
