Winner of the 2004 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award, Intimate Apparel tells the story of Esther, a middle-aged, African-American seamstress in turn-of-the-20th-century New York who has learned to make ends meet by teaching herself to sew lingerie. After decades of loneliness, Esther finds solace in letters from George, a handsome, young Caribbean man working on the Panama Canal. Enlivened by this potential romance, but burdened by illiteracy, Esther relies on two of her patrons -- a rich white socialite and a prostitute -- to help her compose her letters to George. Intimate Apparel was written by Lynn Nottage, winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Ruined. Learn More

“Six degrees of separation” refers to the idea that, if a person is one link away from each person they know, and two links away from each person who is known by each of the people they know, then everyone is at most six degrees away from any other person on Earth. The term was popularized by John Guare’s intriguing, insightful exploration of celebrity and the games we play to elevate our significance.
