Enjoy this sneak peek of the powerful visual language in the Dartmouth Department of Theater’s production of Lynn Nottage’s Intimate Apparel, running Friday, November 4, through Sunday, November 13, in The Moore Theater of the Hopkins Center. In this winner of the 2004 New York Drama Critics Circle and the Outer Critics Circle Awards, a middle-aged African American seamstress in New York circa 1905 creates dreamy undergarments that, she hopes, are her ticket to a fulfilled life. With rich characters, subtle period details and an O. Henry twist, Intimate Apparel “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).
