Top Girls

American Conservatory Theater

In '80s Britain, Marlene celebrates a promotion with a dinner party full of legendary, historical, and mythical women, from Pope Joan to one of Chaucer's pilgrims to an imperial Japanese courtesan. As the wine starts to flow, each of these iconic women shares her own stories of sacrifice and success--but where's the sisterhood?


This is what SF/Arts curator Jean Schiffman has to say about Top Girls :

Amidst a season of Caryl Churchill plays on stages Bay Area-wide, this 1982 play by the great British playwright opens ACT’s season, directed by Tamilla Woodard. Set in the 1980s in Thatcher’s England, it follows an ambitious career woman (played by Michelle Beck) as she rises inexorably. Along the way, various historical and fictional characters—Dull Gret, Patient Griselda and more—discuss the plight of women in society.
