Three misfits, an assassin, a boy, and a young woman named after the Roman dictator Sulla meet in a building that keeps growing floors. Written by Jill Connell, The Tall Building was inspired by days and nights lived in an Edmonton high-rise and is set in a time where destructive weather, unruly humans, and coyotes in the 7-Eleven are the norm.

Handsome Alice Theatre, once known as Urban Curvz, is Calgary’s only theatre company dedicated to unleashing the female voice and is kicking off its first full season under its new moniker. The production features Order of Canada Recipient, Denise Clarke, behind the helm as director and stars Geneviève Paré, Geoffrey Simon Brown and Telly James.

The Tall Building runs September 9 to 17, 2016 at the Big Secret Theatre, Arts Commons (205 8th Ave. SE). Tickets are available at or by calling 403.294.9494.
