Winner of two Pulitzer Prizes, the 2004 New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and the Outer Critics Circle Award, Lynn Nottage’s beautifully written and intensely personal story weaves a delicate tapestry of the joys and sorrows of an African American seamstress in 1905 New York City.

Esther sews elegant intimates for socialites and prostitutes alike as a vibrant cast of characters plays part in her determined search for love and respect in a world that seems to overlook her.

” … a deeply moving portrait of Esther, a middle-aged African-American woman … Nottage’s play has a delicacy and eloquence that seem absolutely right for the time she is depicting … New York has no richer play … ” –NY Daily News
” … thoughtful, affecting … The play offers poignant commentary on an era when the cut and color of one’s dress – and of course, skin – determined whom one could and could not marry, sleep with, even talk to in public.” –Variety
“ … a near-perfect balance between content and execution … ” –Associated Press
