ABOUT THE PLAY:
Top Girls by Caryl Churchill
October 10-19 at CTC
After she’s named the first female executive at the Top Girls employment agency, the ambitious Marlene finds herself in a surreal exploration of the sacrifices required of women who succeed in a man’s world. Almost 40 years have passed since this play was written, and the central question remains: Will women ever really be able to have it all? (This play contains strong language and situations that may not be appropriate for younger audiences.)
