A Tailor for Ladies
Currently on European tour after performing at The Cockpit, London. Accessible online soon
Dr Moulineaux has a little pickle. He has spent the night out to meet his mistress, but his wife has found his empty bed! Luckily, he’s an incredible deceiver…but perhaps after disguising himself as a dressmaker and hurtling down into a web of lies, the doctor might have gone too far this time…

Directed by Lee James Broadwood, A Tailor for Ladies is a naughty and comedic French farce translated by Penny Tomai and adapted by Tomai and Broadwood from a Georges Feydeau original. Extravagant and camp, it presents twentieth-century high-class society in its most self-indulgent and frivolous form.
ACCESSIBILITY AND INCLUSIVITY
Our performance aims for true and genuine diversity, with members of its cast and crew from nine different countries and almost half of them being members of the LGBTQIA+ community. We have ensure inclusivity for our audiences as well by including English subtitles with every performance for hard-of-hearing audience members, and an additional set of subtitles in one of five other languages per day, from Greek, French, Italian and Spanish, for non-English speakers. Special arrangements are also in place every night for audience members with visual impairments, who are invited to experience the set and actors sensorially before the beginning of the performance. Our chosen theatre venue is accessible to wheelchair users, as well.
