The Tall Girls

By Meg Miroshnik | Directed by Jane Mandel
EAST COAST PREMIERE
OCTOBER 8 - NOVEMBER 1
MAINSTAGE

The tiny hamlet of Poor Prairie doesn't see a lot of folks coming into town - least of all men - so when one gets off the train, everybody talks, especially since he has the only inflated basketball in town. Set in the historic 1930s Dust Bowl in the rural Midwest, The Tall Girls explores class, gender, and the history of women in sports, and asks just who can afford the luxury of play.
