Auditions for Intimate Apparel by Lynn Nottage. 2 men, and 4 women (nonunion, stipend) presented by Compass Rose Theater in Annapolis, MD. Directed by Lottie Porch.

In 1905 New York City, Esther, a Black seamstress, is in great demand for the intimate apparel she creates for clients who range from wealthy white patrons to prostitutes. Though leading a life that provides joy to many, she remains lonely and longs for a husband and a future. Through a mutual acquaintance, she begins a correspondence with a lonesome Caribbean man named George and soon he persuades her that they should marry, sight unseen. However, Esther’s heart is drawn to the Hasidic shopkeeper from whom she buys cloth, and his heart is with her. When George arrives in the city, Esther is hit with the reality of the situation and is forced to face a future for which she is truly unprepared.
