"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.
