Top Girls

By Caryl Churchill
Directed by David Shirley

Set in the early Thatcher years, Top Girls is a seminal play of the modern theatre, revealing a world of women's experience at a pivotal moment in British history. Told by an eclectic group of historical and modern characters in a continuous conversation across the ages and generations, Top Girls was hailed 'the best British play ever by a woman dramatist' (The Guardian).

One of the seminal plays of the twentieth century, Top Girls flashes with razor-sharp wit and ingenious theatricality.

'Top Girls' pinpoints the exact moment success overtook compassion as the cardinal social virtue. (Time Out Magazine)
