Caryl Churchill's iconic play TOP GIRLS mixes fantasy and reality, history and heresy to bring you the story of Marlene. A bit too old to be a "girl", with a healthy taste for whisky, Marlene has just been promoted at work. In a world where men are the employers, where do children and warmth and vulnerability have a place? And if you must give them up, what are the consequences? Set in Thatcherite Britain Top Girls is a deeply human, moving examination of feminist values in the home, in the workplace and in our past, and the contrast between a celebration of capitalism and the individual and socialism and the collective. Sometimes political, sometimes hilarious but always painfully true. Galloglass Theatre Company take their production of Top Girls on tour around the country, visiting venues in Dublin, Listowel, Kilmallock, Clonmel and Kilkenny.
