"The Tallest Man in the World" is a play about an unspeakable love, almighty difference and the torment of memory.
Two men. One woman. Treacherously connected, yet forever alone. It's a play about love, torment, memories and loss. They are suspended in a timeless place with only their memories for company. Should we ever have to ask for love? Presented with generous support from Culture Ireland.

Don't see it if u are uncomfortable w/dark themes; prefer traditional theatre;dislike characters who deliver long monalogues & don't really interact.
See it if you can follow actors playing multiple roles (I think) in a non-traditional script

See it if you like watching a dramatization of what is essentially a long poem.
Don't see it if you do not like lyrical, poetic writing. You prefer more action.
See it if you like new/raw theatre or works-in-progress and enjoy a bit of a puzzle-piece plotline
Don't see it if you need everything chronological or expect a polished performance
See it if You like serious trauma dealt with by lyrical dream-fugue dialogues, and you care the most about the power of that writing and acting.
