The Haberdasher! a tale of derring-do
Written by the unflappable Huntington Playwriting Fellow Walt McGough, The Haberdasher! follows the story of young, proud Antoinette, haberdasher’s apprentice and a phenom with a ruler. One fateful evening, Vivienne, a sword-wielding, wise-cracking burglar, finds herself in the shop, in need of a disguise. With an entire kingdom of characters (played by four actors) a dubious plot surrounding a mysterious item unfurls, with enough swordfighting, swashbuckling, and cross dressing to make your head spin!
