…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
From Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage, writer of Crumbs from the Table of Joy and By the Way, Meet Vera Stark, comes this tale of love and desire at the turn of the 20th century. Ester, a talented black seamstress, saves her money as she works toward her future sewing intimate apparel for wealthy matrons and prostitutes alike. Even as she longs for a forbidden love, she accepts a future with a distant correspondent who woos her with possibilities. As Ester’s dreams seem to lie beyond her grasp, her deft fingers stitch together the hope of her dreams.
