Event description
Post Productions presents Edward Albee's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Three Tall Women.

About this event

In this Pulitzer Prize-winning play, an elderly woman's life is laid out for display as her memories and reminiscences are unceremoniously examined, and she is forced to ponder who she is and how she came to be that way. Through the play’s vivid characters, audiences will find themselves contemplating their own lives from different perspectives, and re-living the moments that matter most.

In the first act, the elderly woman, known only as A (played by Mary Grace Weir) struggles to hold on to her dignity in the face of dementia and disability while visiting with her live-in nurse, known only as B (played by Fay Lynn), and the lawyer who manages her estate, known only as C (played by Rebecca Mickle). Although their conversations can be prickly, they gradually come to understand one another.

In the second act, we’re taken inside the woman’s mind as she’s dying, where three versions of herself at different ages (92, 52, and 26) compare notes and take stock of the journey her life has been, replete with joys and sorrows, tragedies and triumphs, regrets and points of pride.

WHEN: February 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26 at 8:00 PM (doors open 7:30)

WHERE: The Shadowbox Theatre (103b – 1501 Howard Ave., the corner of Howard and Shepherd), Windsor, ON

Organizer Post Productions

Organizer of Three Tall Women by Edward Albee

Post Productions provides intimately-staged entertaining theatrical experiences that arouse the heart and fuel the mind, drawing patrons into lives quite unlike their own to help them understand the world, other people, and themselves with fresh insight. As a unique brand of theatre, Post Productions complements the Windsor-Essex scene by staging provocative productions for audiences that want more for their dollar: post-theatre, post-art, post-entertainment.

We commit to:
1. Hold auditions only for roles that have not been pre-cast

2. Treat every member of the cast, crew and audience as free agents with dignity and respect

3. Conduct all business affairs with honesty and integrity

4. Collaborate with other artists in Windsor-Essex to mutual benefit whenever possible

5. Focus on character and story over all other aspects of theatre

6. Cast only the best local acting talent

7. Contribute to a vibrant, thriving and diverse Windsor-Essex theatre community by supporting, patronizing, and encouraging other companies

8. Strive to push ourselves to improve and grow with each performance of each production

9. Work with each other, rather than over or under each other

10. Use theatre to challenge conventions, habits and assumptions by staging productions that leave audiences compelled to think, discuss, and debate long after the show ends
