Audition booking now open! Auditions take place next week, Friday 24, Saturday 25 February with call backs on Saturday 26 February.
Top Girls is a fascinating play about who wins when you put yourself first and who loses. Set in the early 1980s, the play features a fascinating fantasy dinner party with attendees from women from culture and history celebrating Marlene’s achievements. In this scene, which is the whole of Act 1, Marlene is the only “real” character and we assume the party is fueled from her imagination. The rest of the play explores her life in the agency and her relationship with the world outside of work, one which seems to have been sacrificed, and it isn’t only her sacrifice that has been made but one that the women around her have also had to make.
Set in the early years of Thatcher’s Britain the play examines what it takes for a woman to succeed, asking whether the uncompromising strive for personal achievement is really to be held above a more socialist form of feminism which favours collective gain and celebrates women’s instinct to care, and want the best for, those around them.
