Silver Spring Stage
10145 Colesville Road Silver Spring
Pulitzer Prize winning Lynn Nottage weaves a lyrical and powerful story in Intimate Apparel of a talented African-American seamstress in New York City at the turn of the previous century, who sews for rich white and poor black clients alike, and saves her earnings so she can someday open her own beauty parlor. She also longs for a loving husband and has a long-distance pen-pal romance with a Barbadian laborer. When he shows up in person, however, he is not the articulate or charming man he seemed to be in his letters. Although deeply wounded, she chooses to move forward with her life, unbroken by a string of betrayals and abandonment. Audiences will be captivated by this poignant and pulls no punches portrait of passion and loneliness.
