“Intimate Apparel,” by Lynn Nottage and directed by Josiah Davis, will be performed July 25 through Aug. 16 at Cumston Hall, 796 Main St. in Monmouth.

In 1905, an African American seamstress supports herself by creating exquisite lingerie for wealthy clients. When a letter arrives from a stranger, it awakens a desire within her that leads to the love that she’s yearned for, but is nothing like she expected. This historical romance by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage creates a portrait of a young woman’s determination and the true meaning of intimacy.

Tickets cost $34 for adults, $29 for senior citizens, and $20 for children.
