Intimate Apparel by Lynn Nottage
New York City, 1905, and an influx of immigration brings change and diversity into conflict with the strict social divides of race, religion and class.
African American seamstress Esther Mills uses the talents of her needle and thread to traverse these divides, but fears life will pass her by. Lynn Nottage’s acclaimed work pays tribute to the fight for independence, the desire for love and connection, and the courage and determination of those forgotten by history.
Chipo Chung trained at RADA and works in theatre, film and television, with celebrated credits including the title role in the RSC’s Dido, Queen of Carthage and Mary Magdalene in A.D. The Bible Continues. Other acting credits include Doctor Who, Fortitude and Camelot on television, and Phèdre, Fallujah, and Talking to Terrorists on stage.
