A revival of Caryl Churchill's comedy about a highly driven woman who runs an employment agency.
Set in the 1980s, this comedy follows the life of Marlene. At a time when Margaret Thatcher was elected as Britain's first female Prime Minister, Marlene is determined to make a success of the female employment agency which she manages. A revival of the 1982 play written by acclaimed playwright, Caryl Churchill (Far Away, A Number and Escaped Alone).
Lyndsey Turner’s high-spec production...pulls out the stops in terms of cast-size...and visually... but... I felt I’d been watching an absorbing but hardly exhilarating and on-the-button museum piece.'
Top Girls remains an important, forever relevant and still surprising play, even in a production that doesn't always hit its marks...Turner's new production slightly mutes some of its impact with designer trickery.'
