Situated at the height of Margaret Thatcher’s England in the 1980’s, “Top Girls” focuses on Marlene, the head of a London employment agency, and examines the sacrifices that she has had to make to achieve her successful career.
Directed by fourth-year directing student Abigail Holland, “Top Girls” opens with an over-the-top dinner party scene attended by five women from history, literature and legend who share their experiences of life, work, love and children. The play continues with a look at the day-to-day battles that Marlene faces at work in a male-dominated industry. “Top Girls” asks questions that continue to resonate today as much as they did when the play was conceived.
