Top Girls

by Caryl Churchill

directed by Liz Adams

Caryl Churchill's 20th century classic Top Girls is as acute and funny now as when it debuted in 1982. In the persons of Pope Joan, Patient Griselda, Isabella Bird, Lady Nijo, and Dull Gret, human history converges from across the centuries for a celebratory dinner with Marlene. She left her working-class roots for another life, but none of her choices along the way have been without cost. Her own history defies her attempts to leave it behind - life is messy and complicated and intrudes whether you want it to or not, she finds. And maybe it's not just her. With acerbic dialogue and stiletto-sharp characters, Top Girls will take you for a dizzying ride.
