Dogstar Theatre: The Tailor Of Inverness
This extraordinary production is a story of the impact of war on ordinary people and families.
Written and performed by Matthew Zajac and inspired by the life of his father.
The Tailor of Inverness is a story of the impact of war on ordinary people and families, a story of a boy who grew up on a farm in Galicia (Eastern Poland, now Western Ukraine) and became a tailor in Inverness, of how a life and an identity can be reconstructed.
Crossing the borders from Ukraine to Poland; to Russia to Iran; to Egypt to Italy; to Germany to Scotland, this extraordinary production tells the story of the tailor’s life and his son’s discoveries about his father through music, poetry, imagery, storytelling and theatre.
“Matthew Zajac's moving performance is a triumph of evocative staging and storytelling.” The Observer
