Three women are brought together in mutual dependency when an elderly lady and her middle aged nurse are visited by a legal clerk with the young person s contempt for age and experience. Their sniping humour shows their fear of loneliness, illness and death, but also how very alike they are. Through passionate affairs and lost loves, the sorrow of ageing and missed opportunities, Three Tall Women portrays the three ages of woman with a supernatural twist. A story that shoots to the heart of family responsibility, identity and maturity and spans the generations. This thoughtful and moving play will be enjoyed by anyone who has ever thought that youth is wasted on the young!Performers Marjorie Yates, Diane Fletcher, Anna-Louise Plowman, Sam Curtis.
