Character Work

Eclipse’s Dramaturg is sharing her research for Intimate Apparel on the blog! The actors have been using this information to get in touch with who their characters really are.  In this play, many of the characters have very different backgrounds, one is a laborer from Barbados, working on digging the Panama, another is Romanian Jewish Immigrant, and of course one is an African American seamstress in New York City, sewing intimate apparel for all kinds of women around the city.  The actors are doing a lot of talking about how their characters’ history’s affect them during the course of the play, and how their characters should interact based on social standards of the time.

Take a look at the dramaturgy page to start learning about our characters’ backgrounds!
