The Gentleman Clothier

Bobcat Players 2022 Season Special


The Gentleman Clothier

by Norm Foster

Our season special, The Gentleman Clothier, is a charming contemporary comedy by Canadian playwright Norm Foster. This is the cautionary tale of Norman Davenport, a tailor who is about to open his own fashionable men’s store in Halifax, Canada. It is a dream come true where his clientele can expect elegance, impeccable service, and high fashion style. But try as he might to find fulfillment in this grand achievement, Norman cannot help but feel he is misplaced in the twenty-first century and would love nothing better than to be a part of the genteel and unhurried Victorian age. With the help of a charming and attractive customer, and two employees, a young girl who is a skilled seamstress and a man who is a jack of all trades, Norman learns to re-examine the fabric of his life. In doing so he discovers some blunt truths in the cliche “Be careful what you wish for.”
