Directed by Deborah Hagedorn

The protagonist of “Three Tall Women,” a compelling woman more than ninety years old, reflects on her life with a mixture of shame, pleasure, regret, and satisfaction. She recalls the fun of her childhood and her marriage, when she had an overwhelming optimism for her future. Yet she bitterly recalls the negative events that resulted in regret: her husband’s extramarital affairs, the death of her husband, and the estrangement of her gay son. Many theater critics consider this to be three-time Pulitzer winner Edward Albee’s best and most forceful play. These “tall women” deal with everything from incontinence to infidelity, depicting aging without sentimentality and telling us about forgiveness, reconciliation, and fate. Dennis Priest makes a cameo appearance as the woman’s son.
