You can now register to join this event, talking all things Caryl Churchill and feminist theatre, via zoom.
Spaces filled up quick for Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse roundtable on Caryl Churchill and feminist theatre, which will take place on Saturday 18 March. But don’t worry… you can still join them on Zoom!
This event comes after the successful opening week of Top Girls by Caryl Churchill, at the Liverpool Everyman.
Join feminist theatre academics Professor Elaine Aston, Professor Mary Luckhurst, Dr Hannah Greenstreet, and our Creative Director and Top Girls Director, Suba Das, for a roundtable discussion celebrating the 40th anniversary of Top Girls.
They will reflect on Caryl Churchill’s career as a playwright, the production history of Top Girls, and what Top Girls means today, as it’s reimagined for the Liverpool stage.
The event will be hosted by Liverpool University.
Top Girls was selected as one of The Stage’s must-see shows to see across the UK in 2023 and What’s on Stage Critic’s pick: Top shows to see in 2023.
Marlene is at the top of her game. As the new Managing Director of Top Girls Employment Agency in the glitz and glamour of 1980s London, she hosts an extraordinary dinner party to celebrate her achievements. But what is the true cost of success for a woman of colour making it in a man’s world?
Returning home to L8, a showdown with sister Joyce lays bare some hidden truths. As the sisters struggle to reconcile their differing realities, what does it mean for the next generation?
Set in a divisive decade of strikes and uprisings; as well as music and fashion that transformed Britain, Top Girls is now reimagined for Liverpool.
Fantastical and fiercely funny, Top Girls is acclaimed as one of British theatre’s crowning glories. As Caryl Churchill’s ground-breaking play turns 40, it is now more urgent and necessary than ever.
