INTIMATE APPAREL
By Lynn Nottage
Director—Scott Schwartz
Contract Dates: June 5- July 30, 2017
ESTHER
35, African American. Esther is a successful seamstress in 1905 New York who makes intimate apparel for women across the social and economic spectrum. She is lonely, though she hides it with a reserved and pragmatic persona. Underneath her surface strength, she is full of self doubt and has deep well of vulnerability. And there is a beautiful soul, someone who is passionate and romantic, a woman who longs for love and intimacy though she isn’t sure how or if it is even possible to achieve it.
MRS. DIXON
50’s, African American. Handsome and impeccably groomed. The owner of the boarding house where Esther lives. She’s seen a lot in her life. A bit of a motherly presence, but also tough and cold eyed about the world. She would like nothing better then to see Esther, who is almost like an adoptive daughter, find happiness and love.
MRS. VAN BUREN
30’s, White, American. Beautiful, a bit delicate and brittle, but also imperious. A wealthy socialite married to a successful man she doesn’t love. She finds release and passion by living through Esther’s burgeoning romance with George. Somewhere deeper she has feelings and desires she can’t admit and that she holds as secrets in her heart.
MR. MARKS
30’s, Romanian Orthodox Jewish Immigrant. Smart, masculine, playful, detail oriented. He is passionate about the fabrics he sells, and secretly in love with Esther. But society in 1905 forbids a relationship with her, and his religion doesn’t allow them even to touch. He expresses his desire through the texture, colors and smells of the beautiful silks he finds.

MAYME
30, African American. A very beautiful, liberated and sexual “Lady of the Night” who also is a pianist and nightclub performer. Worldly, she’s lived a tough life, but she is also confident and comfortable with herself and her world. There is a fire inside her that she expresses through her forceful and impassioned music. Must play the piano well.
GEORGE
30’s, Barbadian Immigrant. Rugged, sexy, sensuous, dark. Over the course of the play we see George in two ways. First, through the poetic letters he sends to Esther telling of his life working on the Panama Canal. This George is manly but sensitive, a worker with a deep and romantic soul. Second, we see the “real” George who comes to America -- a bitter, desperate man looking to satisfy his own needs. This role demands an actor of great range and charisma who can fully inhabit both sides of a complicated man.
