The Tailors' Last Stand archiveIt's the last meeting for this intrepid band of London Tailors. A time to reminisce, to swap stories of what was and of what might have been, to take stock and to look into the future. But not for one moment is this going to be a tranquil wake. Fireworks can still fly and scores can still be settled when our comrades get together. In one meeting, a whole era finds its spirit. As Max, Barney, George and Tom perform the last rites over their beloved Union Branch and consign it to history, they are bidding a sad farewell to a time of struggle, of belief in a finer society. These four tailors, despite all they've suffered and seen, still firmly believe in their paradise on earth, their socialist utopia where life will be better, sweeter, more perfect and more precious. They have lived and will die cherishing this ideal. This play takes an affectionate yet comic look at these man. There is sadness and nostalgia woven into the evening as two of the four remember the beautiful young woman they loved and lost in their youth.
