Abstract / Summary
In this play by Caryl Churchill, it's the middle of the high-flying, go-getting 80's in Maggie Thatcher's England and Marlene finally has something to celebrate—she's just been made Managing Director of Top Girls Employment Agency. But with no friends to speak of, and a past she'd just as soon forget, the guests at Marlene's party are a collection of famous women from history. Soon, Marlene discovers that life above the glass ceiling is not all it's cracked up to be.An L.A.
