Sydney Theatre Company presents
By Caryl Churchill

It takes a hard head to smash a glass ceiling

Marlene is unstoppable. She’s been promoted to the top job at a London employment agency and it’s time to celebrate! Her dinner party with famous female figures from throughout history is one of playwright Caryl Churchill’s wittiest and best-known scenes.

But Marlene’s success is soon undermined by the compromises she’s made and the past she’s left behind. Privilege comes at a cost – but she might not be the one who picks up the tab.

STC favourite Helen Thomson (After Dinner) makes a very welcome return to our stage in this modern classic, widely considered Churchill’s masterpiece. Whip-smart, funny, and ultimately very moving, Top Girls was written in London in 1982, with the cut-throat era of Thatcherism only just beginning.
