Intimate Apparel & Fabulation: Two Plays

By Lynn Nottage

Paperback £14.99

There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

Two companion pieces spanning 100 years in the lives of African American women.

Intimate Apparel is about the empowerment of Esther, a proud and shy seamstress in 1905 New York who creates exquisite lingerie for both Fifth Avenue boudoirs and Tenderloin bordellos.

In Fabulation, Nottage reimagines Esther as Undine, the public relations diva of today, who spirals downward from her swanky Manhattan office to her roots back in Brooklyn.
