Western Gold Theatre’s latest production of Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women opens this week, and Joseph Planta speaks to one of its actors Anna Hagan, and the production’s director, Terence Kelly, about the show, Albee, and more.
Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver, at TheCommentary.ca.
A new production of Edward Albee’s Pulitzer Prize winning play, Three Tall Women bows at the PAL Studio Theatre in Vancouver’s Coal Harbour this week. Presented by the Western Gold Theatre, I’m joined now by the production’s director Terence Kelly, and one of the show’s performers, Anna Hagan. I’ll get them to tell us about this production. In the play, an imperious, acerbic old woman is cared for by two other women and visited by a young man. The sharp dialogue of Albee rings throughout, and the audience learns about life, love, and death. Western Gold Theatre is a professional company based at PAL, the Performing Arts Lodge at 581 Cardero Street. I’ll get Ms. Hagen to tell us about Western Gold, as she is its artistic director.

In 2013, Ms. Hagan and Mr. Kelly received the Jessie Award for Career Achievement in Theatre. Their stage, film and television credits are legion. Three Tall Women runs from 23 October to 09 November 2014. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Anna Hagan and Terence Kelly; Ms. Hagan, good morning. And Mr. Kelly, good morning.
