INTIMATE APPAREL follows Esther (Tamara McMillian), a talented seamstress in turn-of-the-century New York, who has built a savings for herself while creating beautiful undergarments for her clientele. As she works, her clientele share their dreams and most intimate desires, and Esther earnestly dreams of new beginnings, romantic possibilities, and the lingering, unlikely affection she shares with a fabric merchant (Tom Steward). However, Esther’s heartfelt desires are cut short when a series of deceptions and abuses befall her—she must discover if class, culture, and circumstance can outmatch the strength of the human spirit. Inspired by a true story, INTIMATE APPAREL is a heart-rending contemporary work in the style of an enduring classic and the winner of the 2004 New York Drama Critics Circle and the Outer Critics Circle Awards, from Lynn Nottage, the first female playwright to win two Pulitzers.
