The Tailor Of Inverness (theatre), Sat 27 April, 8pm

Saturday, April 27, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Written and acted by Matthew Zajac, and based on the life of his father, this extraordinary play tells the story of the tailor’s life and his son’s discoveries about his father using music, poetry, storytelling, and video projection.  It reveals the impact of war on ordinary people and families, and how a life and an identity can be reconstructed as the tailor journeys from Poland across war-torn Europe and settles in Inverness. The tailor’s life spanned most of the 20th century, and the journey he took was made by thousands of Poles during the Second World War. His was a forced migration, subject to the brutal vagaries of war. Live violin weaves its way evocatively through the piece, with traditional and original songs and tunes from Scotland, Poland and Russia.

“Matthew Zajac’s moving performance is a triumph of evocative staging and storytelling.” The Observer

 £12/10 concs/8 U16’s
