the transformative power of live theater

2014 Season

Top Girls

March 6 – May 18, 2014

Written by: Caryl Churchill
Directed by: Cameron Watson

Politics get personal in the go-getting 1980s of Margaret Thatcher’s England when Marlene, who has just been made managing director of the Top Girls Employment Agency, discovers that life above the glass ceiling is not all it’s cracked up to be. An insightful commentary on bourgeois feminism, this bold and ingenious work offers one of theater’s most honest portraits of what it means to be a woman in the modern world. Shoulder-pads may no longer be in fashion, but Churchill’s masterpiece continues to resonate.
