Matthew Zajac’s international hit show about his Polish father goes on its 6th Scottish tour.
The Tailor of Inverness has entranced over 36,000 people, playing in a huge variety of venues from prestigious theatres in cities which include New York, Adelaide, Kiev, Malmo and Berlin to tiny village halls. This is a rare chance to see this unforgettable and moving story of displacement and survival in war-torn Europe, a powerful allegory for all victims of war.
