About the Show

Three misfits meet high above the ground in a building that keeps growing floors. These are our times: destructive weather, unruly humans, and coyotes in the 7-Eleven. Inspired by days and nights lived in an Edmonton high-rise, this dark comedy is an emergency call made by those searching for identity, connection, and a sense of home. Performed at the intersection of skill and instinct, The Tall Building is a negotiation between danger and tenderness as we continue to wonder how to make a city that works.
