Out of Fashion is a historical comedy tying together missed connections of history, fashion, romance, murder, family and The British Empire, set under  the umbrella of an India struggling to free itself. In three acts set in three distinct time periods, it traces the history of three generations of a famous Indian family through their accidental altercations and unplanned romances with another particular middle-class English family. The catalyst or the setting for these unplanned intersections remains a particular suit shop of the highest prestige in Saville Rowe, London, itself run by the intricate and intimate connections of several generations of two elitist   suit-makers.  The evolution of tailors, monarchs, patriots, common men and fashion designers within the tailor shop, with time as a fuel, accidents as the catalyst and myth as the vehicle, forms the heart of this play of ideas.
