Three Tall Women

by Edward Albee

directed by Ian Black

The 1994 Pulitzer Prize winner is a profound meditation on personal identity and memory, exploring life and experience through the eyes of the three unnamed title characters. An elderly woman, known simply as A, reflects on her life and relationships, accompanied by her carer (B) and is visited by her solicitor C.

Timeless, eloquent and perceptive, Albee's masterful exploration of the arc of a life is shot through with great humour, subtlety and sadness.

"A truly moving work... an undeniably affecting emotional core and a shimmeringly black sense of humour." -- New York Times
