So much cultural history has been relegated—and lost, over the centuries—to the kitchens, laundry rooms, and other work and meeting places of women. Playwright Lynn Nottage drew on old family photographs and stories about her great-grandmother for this 2003 drama about a black seamstress in turn-of-the-century New York who, as a maker of fine undergarments, glimpses worlds of privilege and happiness that she cannot access for herself. But when a fellow churchgoer urges her into a long-distance romantic correspondence with a Barbadian laborer on the Panama Canal, the distance between different dreams of prosperity and contentment threatens all they've built. Raelle Myrick-Hodges directs for PlayMakers Repertory Company. —Byron Woods
