As we are reviving our promenade pantomime burlesque, with a new version called Stinxville – Let Them Eat Cake, we are searching for suitable locations around the city for this site-specific piece. On Tuesday I wore my feet out, schlepping around the Lace Market area. One of my intrepid goals was to find a suitable site in which to stage the Wicked Tailor’s shop. By remarkable serendipity, I spoke to an extremely nice man about access to one of the gated alley-ways, only to discover he was, in fact, a tailor! I can’t remember ever having met a tailor in my life before, but its amazing what you find when you take a fresh look at your own city.
