Tightlaced Theatre Company is celebrating their second anniversary and it seems nothing says “happy birthday” like lust, obsession and vengeance. The Dress Affair was originally devised by the company as part of a graduate production and now comes to life in a full length version, based on a poem by a Brazilian writer, Carlos Drummond de Andrade.

The story follows Wife (Danielle Farrow) and her psychiatrist (Andrew Henry) as a mischievous dress takes over her mind and soon she is lead down a dangerous path, claiming the dress has stolen her husband.

With a Brazilian Director in the form of Flavia D’Avila and a Scottish writer, Rob David, the play should provide a truly multi-cultural experience with the passion and drive of Latin-America meeting the crazy world of our own Edinburgh head-space. Dress tackles the issue of the female persona head on, being described as both dark and sexy the production is not for the faint of heart but for those who wish to delve deeper into the human psyche and explore the type of people we could become. Does the dress lead the woman or does the woman lead the dress? There’s only one way to find out and it’s by visiting the GRV between the 7th and 11th of September. Go on, bring a bit of Latin passion into your life.
