Three Tall Women

Melbar Entertainment Group, Stratford Festival


- Feature Length Film

Three Tall Women is one of the most significant Canadian theatrical events and has been captured on film to persevere the incomparable legacy of both the play and the iconic Mathra Henry. Filmed at the Stratford Festival, it’s production of Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women features Henry in her final, tour-de-force performance. It was to be her final performance; she died just 12 days after the production closed. Now this remarkable performance is available for home viewing directed for the screen by Barry Avrich and produced by Melbar Entertainment Group. As the stage production occurred during pandemic restrictions, only 3,000 people were able to see the play live in Stratford. Now the Festival is able to bring this unforgettable production to all of Canada, through a one-time special arrangement with the Estate of Edward Albee in acknowledgment of the final performance of Martha Henry.
