Adapted from the novel of the same name by Wilma Dykeman, The Tall Woman follows a woman named Lydia Moore McQueen and the effects of a hard life in the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina just after the Civil War and during Reconstruction. This is a beautiful story of self-sacrifice, conviction, and forgiveness. The Tall Woman is making its WNC premiere on the SART stage!
