BC’s Theatre Replacement Society “dresses up” for international tour

Using clothes to stitch together the stories of our past is the premise of Dress Me Up in Your Love. In this production by Vancouver’s Theatre Replacement Society, 10 performers dress and undress to reveal the stories behind the clothes and the closets they came from. For the company’s first international tour, the production was staged at venues in Cardiff, Wales and Oldenburg, Germany.
