Staging life

What: Here’s a story on the lives of women across three generations. ‘Three Tall Women’ is a play that explores the expectations of 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. So drop in to know what happens next.
