Matthew Zajac’s stunning show has entranced over 26,000 people in 10 countries, most recently selling out for three weeks at New York’s Brits Off Broadway Festival in April 2015.  The Tailor of Inverness is an unforgettable and moving story of displacement and survival in war-torn Europe, a powerful allegory for all victims of war.
