"Do you think there’s something wrong with a woman alone?"
New York, 1905. Emmy Award winner Samira Wiley plays Esther, who sews exquisite lingerie for women from all walks of life. Successful and fiercely independent, she dreams of opening her own beauty salon, but can’t shake the longing to fall in love. When she begins to receive beautiful letters from a lonesome stranger, it looks like it could just be her ticket to happiness.
Double Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Lynn Nottage reunites with director Lynette Linton (Critics’ Circle Best Director for Blues for an Alabama Sky) for this new production of one of Nottage’s most acclaimed plays, following their sell-out productions of Sweat and Clyde’s for the Donmar.
