By Caryl Churchill
For the first time, the National Theatre stages Caryl Churchill’s wildly innovative play about a country divided by its own ambitions.
Now hiring: top girls wanted for prestige positions. Must be self-motivated go-getters with an appetite for success. No timewasters.
Marlene is the first woman to head the Top Girls employment agency. But she has no plans to stop there. With Maggie in at Number 10 and a spirit of optimism consuming the country, Marlene knows that the future belongs to women like her.
Churchill’s work includes Far Away, A Number and Escaped Alone.
Lyndsey Turner (Light Shining in Buckinghamshire, Chimerica) directs.
