In 1905 opportunities for Black women are in short supply. Thirty-five year old Esther has a gift for sewing exquisite garments but the richness of her work belies the loneliness in her life. An unexpected letter opens up a world of opportunities and she risks everything to wed a Caribbean stranger.


“Intimate Apparel is one of those productions so perfect in every way, it’s hard to praise properly.” Richard Ouzounian Toronto Star
