“Three Tall Women” is a play that is about expectations, about getting old, and about coming to the end of it. The play opens to the bedroom of an old lady, with a failing memory, accompanied by her middle-aged caretaker and a young lawyer. The old lady eventually succumbs to a stroke, and the play moves to her mental landscape, where her life is remembered through the shadowy vestiges of memory, and tough questions are asked.

Some paths are not easy to traverse, and love is one of them. Some love stories exist out there, unfulfilled, unheard. This story revolves around that closet which we never open because of the fear that resides inside us.
