The Tall Girls

Theater Wit
1229 W Belmont Ave Chicago

As Jean gets off the train in Poor Prairie, a dusty speck on the map during the Depression, she meets a handsome man holding a cloth bag that conceals a brand new basketball. Jean has been exiled to what she fears is her "grave town" to be caretaker for her wild younger cousin. Haunt Johnny has a checkered past of his own, but he knows how to coach. In true pioneering spirit, the town's girls build a basketball team that just might be their means of escape to a better life. Inspired by the 1930's basketball teams in the rural Midwest, The Tall Girls asks, "Who can afford the luxury of play? And will these young women prevail against a town hell bent on crushing their dreams?"

ChicagoCritic - Highly Recommended

"...This show is both dramatic and compelling as the cast have amazing basketball skills as well as fine acting talent. I was impressed by the performance by Angie Shriner and Joseph Wiens. This is a winning play that is more than A Play About Playing Basketball! The six players here score a hit."
