Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage's vivid tale is set among the bustle of New York in the early part of the 20th century. Esther, a talented African-American seamstress, crafts stunning undergarments for women from the brothels to the Upper East Side. Shimmering with vital and memorable characters, this is a powerful and moving tale of romance, independence, acceptance, and what lies just under our outer appearances.
