Top Girls – Aug 12th 2023 7:30pm



Top Girls is a three act play by the phenomenal playwright, Caryl Churchill. First staged in London in 1982, the play centers around Marlene, who has just been promoted to Managing Director of the Top Girls Employment Agency.

The famous opening scene takes place at a celebratory dinner for Marlene’s promotion. However, unlike any ordinary dinner, the guests are women from history – some real, some legendary.

Following acts switch locations between Top Girls Employment Agency and Marlene’s sister Joyce’s home.

This dramatic, sometimes surreal and darkly funny work explores women’s lives under the patriarchy, and the sacrifices we make on the path to ‘the top’ of an individualist, capitalist structure.
