It’s 1945. Paris has just been liberated, and Leon and Helene have recently reopened the workroom of a tailor’s shop.

A gripping memory play from one of France’s most acclaimed playwrights, in an English version by Amy Rosenthal. Mixing finely-tuned dialogue with haunting songs, it is a poignant and passionate rendering of post-war Paris.
