Directed by Jade King Carroll

Visit the Intimate Apparel website

The year is 1905. A young, single African American seamstress is supporting herself by creating exquisite lingerie for wealthy Manhattan clients. When a letter arrives from a stranger, it awakens a desire within her that leads to the love she yearned for, but is nothing like she expected. Jade King Carroll (The Piano Lesson) returns to McCarter to direct this tender, exquisitely-written historical romance from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage (Ruined, Sweat). It is a deeply moving tale of one woman’s discovery of her own empowerment and the true meaning of intimacy.
