The Tallest Man
Written by Jim Lynch
Directed by John Mossman
Developed over the past two years by playwright and Artistic Home associate Jim Lynch, along with the Artistic Home Ensemble, The Tallest Man is a wildly hilarious celebration of perseverance, prejudice and superstition in turn of the century Ireland. Culled from a childhood nourished by tales of Irish fantasy, The Tallest Man's account of hardscrabble survivors in County Mayo begins as a ghost story but draws its power from the very real problems of the living. Drawing from an Irish folk tale, the play tells the story of a high-spirited young tinker struggling to stay one step ahead of the English landlords, corrupt clergy and vengeful locals.
