Newby calls The Tall Building “a twisted, dark, quirky little comedy. It’s something very different than what we’re used to seeing here in Calgary.”The Tall Building, which stars Genevieve Pare, Geoffrey Simon Brown and Telly James, is being directed by Denise Clarke.“It was essential Denise direct this show because she has a similar sensibility as the playwright who she mentored at the National Theatre.”Following close on the heels of The Tall Building, Handsome Alice will present Rosemary Rowe’s The Good Bride, which received its world premiere at Edmonton’s Northern Lights Theatre last season.
