Intimate Apparel

By Lynn Nottage

Winner of two Pulitzer Prizes, the 2004 New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and the Outer Critics Circle Award, Lynn Nottage’s beautifully written and intensely personal story weaves a delicate tapestry of the joys and sorrows of an African American seamstress in 1905 New York City. Esther sews elegant intimates for socialites and prostitutes alike as a vibrant cast of characters plays part in her determined search for love and respect in a world that seems to overlook her.

” … a deeply moving portrait of Esther, a middle-aged African-American woman … Nottage’s play has a delicacy and eloquence that seem absolutely right for the time she is depicting … New York has no richer play … ” –NY Daily News
” … thoughtful, affecting … The play offers poignant commentary on an era when the cut and color of one’s dress – and of course, skin – determined whom one could and could not marry, sleep with, even talk to in public.” –Variety
“ … a near-perfect balance between content and execution … ” –Associated Press
