Top Girls Summary

Top Girls by Caryl Churchill

Caryl Churchill: 'A dramatist who must surely be rated among the half-dozen best now writing...a playwright of genuine audacity and assurance, able to use her considerable wit and intelligence in ways at once unusual, resonant and dramatically riveting' Benedict Nightingale, New Statesman 'Ms Churchill is one of our best writers...her play is brilliantly conceived with considerable wit to illuminate the underlying deep human seriousness of her theme' Bryan Robertson, Spectator Set in the early Thatcher years, Top Girls is a serminal play of the modern theatre, revealing a world of women's experience at a pivotal moment in British history. Told by an eclectic group of historical and modern characters in a continuous conversation across ages and generations, Top Girls was hailed as 'the best British play ever by a woman dramatist' (Guardian). Commentary and notes by Bill Naismith and Nick Worrall
