Top Girls
by Caryl Churchilldirected by Zöe Freedman
7.15pm • Wednesday 6th – Saturday 9th July 2016
Upstairs @ The Carriageworks

Set in the early 1980s, Top Girls is a dramatic and powerful piece of theatre. The play follows Marlene, new managing director of ‘Top Girls’ employment agency, as she celebrates her promotion, goes to work and visits her estranged family.

Secrets are revealed, home truths told, and the position of women in society and the workplace examined.

Top Girls is a classic of modern theatre with an all-female cast of strong and individual characters. It has been described as “the best British play ever by a female dramatist.”

The play contains strong language and scenes that some people may find upsetting.

Tickets are on sale, available from the Carriageworks Box Office, in the Electric Press building on Millennium Square. Please call in person, or telephone 0113 376 0318. You can also book your tickets online.
