There is a fabled shtetl in Eastern Europe where everyone's a tailor. When Purim comes each year, they present a pageant, the fruit of months of hard work. Dressed in modern-day garb, they "become" the characters in the biblical comedy of errors preserved in the Megilleh of Esther, Queen of Persia.
