A black seamstress living in New York in 1905 sews intimate apparel for clients who range from wealthy white patrons to prostitutes. She is successful in her work, but yearns for love and a husband. Winner of the 2004 New York Drama Critics Circle and the Outer Critics Circle Awards.
“…Nottage’s play has a delicacy and eloquence that seem absolutely right for the time she is depicting…” – The New York Daily News
“…thoughtful, affecting… The play 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
Woman in Mind
A Play by Alan Ayckbourn
Directed by Charles Braslow

Show Dates: June 14-15, 21-22, 28-29, 2013 at 8 PM

Alan Ayckbourn, the “comic poet of middle class life,” creates a “savage tragi-comedy” in which a housewife hallucinates an ideal family to replace her oppressive and boring real life. Written mostly while Ayckbourn was on vacation in the Virgin Islands, the play shows us that even the bleakest situations aren’t allergic to laughter, and that our foibles are often food for mirth.
