Following our success in New York with the show, The Tailor of Inverness played for four rather special performances in Scotland in May.
23rd Greenside Church Hall, Edinburgh,
promoted by the Edinburgh Branch of the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain
This was a particularly charged performance of the show in front of a packed hall, with the majority of the audience coming from Edinburgh's Ukrainian community, a large proportion of whom are the sons and daughters of Ukrainian soldiers who settled in Scotland after the Second World War. Most of these soldiers came from Galicia/Halychyna, the region where the story and the Tailor originated. Afterwards, we all repaired to the Ukrainian Club up the road where the bar was open and Matthew was cheered when he finally made it for a drink after the get out !
27th & 28th Dumfries & Galloway Arts Festival - Dalbeattie & Wigtown
Around 230 attended over the 2 performances in this beautiful part of Scotland.
Great work by Peter Renwick and his team.
29th Glenbuchat Hall, Aberdeenshire
The hall in this hidden glen has become well-known as a music venue, with promoter Steve Cameron presenting an excellent range of folk, blues and Americana specialists, including our own Jonny Hardie. One of our older audience members informed us that our performance was the first theatre presentation in the hall since the Second World War !
