THREE TALL WOMEN
by Edward Albee

Directed by Geoff Brittain
Designed by Ole Wiebkin

Wednesday to Saturday 9-12 & 16-19 August 2017, 7.30pm
Little Theatre, The Cloisters, University of Adelaide

“I had a premonition.  I know you say there's no such thing, but I had one.  It was I died”

 

The Theatre Guild and director Geoff Brittain are delighted to return to Albee's work following the hugely successful 2015 season of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

As an imperious, acerbic old woman lies dying, tended by 2 other women, she remembers the fun of her childhood, an early marriage and the optimism of youth.  But as her mind wanders, she recalls later events and bitterness creeps in, revealing disappointment, betrayal and unhappiness.   Her son arrives to kneel at her bedside.  But is it too late?

Based largely on the story of his adoptive mother, Pulitzer prize winning drama Three Tall Women is a startling and provocative portrayal of a wealthy widow looking back on her life in an attempt to solve its riddles; a journey that transports her to a landscape of reflection where generations collide and time vanishes.

Ageing and human frailty are depicted with insight, wit and a complete absence of sentimentality.  Albee lays bare the pettiness and self-deception in our lives, whilst introducing a dimension of forgiveness and reconciliation not seen in his earlier work.
