Marlene, successful director of the Top Girls employment agency, throws a dinner party for famous women throughout history: Pope Joan, Chaucer’s Patient Griselda, Breughel’s Dull Gret. From its opening moments Caryl Churchill’s now-classic play sets contemporary women’s struggles for power, recognition, and equality against the rich background of feminist history. But how does Marlene deal with the women in her own life and business?
Join in a conversation with Top Girls director Mikhael Tara Garver, and Assistant Professor of Professional Practice Alice Reagan.
Join the cast, family, friends, and faculty for a reception immediately following Friday night’s performance.
