"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.
See it if you want to support this experimental theater & young, inexperienced players; can put effort into "getting" the Irish 'magical realism'
Don't see it if you expect great Irish prose & instead get 3 stereotypes: alcoholic father, a hyperdramatic daughter & the distant "Finn McCool" giant
See it if You like confusing, melodramatic pieces about sad people tormented by ugly pasts
Don't see it if You need to really understand and engage with what you are seeing
See it if Well,this kind of experimental poetic monologue thing is generally not 4 me but if you want far from the mainstream and taboo subjects maybe
Don't see it if You expect a NYC play to have good acting,writing&directing.Like to see the actors who are delivering the lines.Have any expectations at all
See it if You like interlocking monologues about flawed and broken people. Enjoy fairly experimental plays. Like to try to sort out a plot.
Don't see it if You want a coherent plot for most of the play and not to have to strain for any idea. You want most aspects of the story to fit together.
See it if you're up for the tough challenge of adding clarity to a too-vague script with too many vague characters and no discernible payoff.
Don't see it if you have even the slightest difficulty in following actors playing an unknown number of vague characters who may or may not overlap.
