This 2003 play is set in Lower Manhattan at the dawn of the 20th Century. Esther Mills, a black seamstress, lives in a boarding house for women and sews intimate apparel for clients who range from socialites to prostitutes. She plans to find the right man and use her savings to open a beauty parlor for black women. When she begins to receive letters from a Caribbean man named George who is working on the Panama Canal, she wonders if he could be that man.
