|Winner of the Pulitzer Prize. This engaging examination of the
life of three woman is one of the biggest hits of the season.
Earning a Pulitzer and three Best Play awards, Edward Albee has, in THREE
TALL WOMEN, created a masterwork of modern theater. As an imperious,
acerbic old woman recounts her life, she is tended by her duteous house keeper
and a young lawyer hoping to get her accounts in order. Albee's frank dialogue
about everything from incontinence to infidelity portrays aging without
sentimentality. His scenes are charged with wit, pain, and laughter, and his
observations tell us about forgiveness, reconciliation, and our own fates. But it is
his probing portrait of the three women that reveals Albee's genius. Representing
individuals characters, and yet the same "everywoman" at different ages in her
life, these "tall women" lay bare the truths of our lives—how we live, how we love,
what we settle for, and how we die. Edward Albee has given theatergoers,
critics, and students of drama reason to rejoice.
"One of America's finest playwrights. Edward
Albee offers a new play so good it can only
exist on the stage. A perfect illustration of
why theater is an indispensable art."
"An extraordinarily brilliant new play. THREE TALL WOMEN is the best,
most forceful play [Albee] has given us…To be truthful about death is
admirable, but to be elegant at the same time is almost Mozartian." —NY
"Beautiful and enduring. THREE TALL WOMEN has earned Albee his
third, and most deserved, Pulitzer Prize." —The New Yorker.
"A dazzler…Worthy of mention in the same breath as Who's Afraid of
Virginia Woolf? and A Delicate Balance. THREE TALL WOMEN blazes as
bright as a midsummer day. Electrifying and heartrending, each of
Albee's women is memorable…" —Wall Street Journal.
