The Tailors' Last Stand
by Ian Buckley
Four old boys who still caper about like adolescents. Four wrinklies full of mischief and fun. Four trade unionists with the sad task of saying a final goodbye to their beloved union. Four comrades with personal memories that still have a sting in the tail.
Seen with sympathy and affection by a playwright who was the son of just such a man, Ian Buckley’s play evokes a whole era through these four men with their very human characters and their moving and mighty belief in a better world.
This is a comedy from the pen of a writer who knows it from the inside.
