Esther, an African-American seamstress in 1905 New York, is a practical woman with quiet dreams. She hopes for lovely things— fine fabric, beautiful words, a loving touch, while supporting herself making exquisite negligees and corsets for women across the social strata. When a distant suitor reaches out through poignant and sensitive letters, her life changes. Through friendship, betrayal, and hope, she stitches a new life, a crazy quilt homely to look at but warming to the soul. Lynn Nottage’s Intimate Apparel is a ‘delicate tapestry woven from hope, longing and a wistful acknowledgment of disappointments reckoned with and limitations faced.’ -San Diego Union-Tribune Tickets via ODU Arts Tix
