Following a sell-out season in Chichester, Max Stafford-Clark's critically acclaimed production of Caryl Churchill's masterpiece, Top Girls transfers to the Trafalgar Studios for a strictly limited season from 5 August.
This smash hit production see Max Stafford-Clark and Caryl Churchill reunited, having originally worked together on the premiere of Top Girls in 1982 at the Royal Court Theatre. A seminal play in an outstanding and powerful production, not to be missed.
It's Thatcher's England and hard-nosed businesswoman Marlene is hosting a dinner party to celebrate her promotion to MD of the Top Girls Employment Agency. Her guests - all powerful women from myth and history - create an extraordinary gathering.
A provocative study of powerful women in Thatcher's Britain, the play examines the compromises made by women in the quest for success, and what happens to those left behind.
'Max Stafford-Clark's superbly directed, well-acted production makes this a penetrating, provocative play for today.'
