The Tailor Of Inverness @ Perth Theatre

Written and performed by Matthew Zajac

Matthew Zajac’s multi-award-winning The Tailor of Inverness is a story of journeys, of how a boy who grew up on a farm in Galicia (Eastern Poland, now Western Ukraine) came to be a tailor in Inverness. Crossing the borders from Ukraine to Poland to Russia to Iran to Egypt to Italy to Germany to Scotland, the fable reflects on several major conflicts in twentieth century history but is personal, intimate and rooted in two cultures: Galicia and the Highlands of Scotland. The play uses the central metaphor of the tailor and his fabric. Audio and video material made on a series of research trips in Poland and Ukraine is incorporated into a detailed overall design. Live violin weaves its way evocatively through the pie
