About Intimate Apparel
By Lynn Nottage
Opening April 1 through April 17
In this heartfelt and heartbreaking work set at the turn of the 20th century, Esther is a 35-year-old African-American seamstress of exquisite intimate apparel who aches to love and be loved. An unlikely opportunity arises when she enters into a correspondence with a man she?s never met. The play is a lyrical exploration of loneliness and longing, sweet dreams and bitter truths, determination, and resiliency.
