About Nassau Community College
“Intimate Apparel” is about Esther, an ambitious, talented and self-reliant thirty-something African American seamstress living on her own in a boarding house in lower Manhattan in 1905. As she works tirelessly to create custom-made lingerie for New York’s uptown ladies — and its downtown ladies of the evening — Esther yearns for two things, true love and a business of her own. In spite of the societal class, race, age and gender dictates of the time, Esther forges ahead to pursue her dreams. “Intimate Apparel” won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.
