In the land of Erehwon, everything is just the way it should be. Then the leader decides to make things “better.” A musical comedy inspired by “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” “A Stitch in Time” tells a timeless and topical story involving love, leadership and laughter. In a sometimes too serious world, “A Stitch in Time” is a chance to relax, be entertained and, along the way, have an “epiphany” or two. Enjoy your visit to Erehwon, the most beautiful country/kingdom in this or any other world 24 hours a day or longer!
