The purpose of this thesis is to illuminate and give context to the development, performance, and future evolution of The Hanging of a Very Tall Man. More specifically, within this document you will find the plays script, an apology for its somewhat bizarre conception, as well as a description of how it has grown, and how I hope for it to develop in the future. As opposed to some scholarly articles which are written with the intent to dissociate themselves from the reader in an attempt to adhere to some kind of imagined etiquette, this document has been written rather personally. I invite any readers in turn to read it personally and take from it what they may.
