With the book Lean In making a splash in 2013, the topic of women and success is just as fresh and current as it was in the 1980s, when Caryl Churchill wrote Top Girls in response to Margaret Thatcher's ambitious rise to power in the UK. Called "the best British play ever from a woman dramatist" by The Guardian, Top Girls follows Marlene, a ruthlessly ambitious career woman, who has seized every opportunity to make it to the top. In the play's famous opening scene, she celebrates her big promotion at a surreal dinner party whose guests are famous women from history and myth. After this celebratory moment, Top Girls changes course to show the cost of Marlene's ambitions. When a young relative shows up unannounced at her workplace, Marlene must examine what the next generations of women will gain (or lose) from the choices she made in her rush to the top. Learn More

Four people of different ages, from different places, are brought together in a series of relationships and affairs. In the process, they learn that truth is not essential to happiness.
I saw "Closer" twice to fully appreciate the witty and humorous text. The show was impeccably-acted. It was fast-paced, without being choppy. I also found the use of sound interesting.
I am looking forward to more productions from the new "Rabbit Hole" theatre company.
This show contains strong language and sexual references.
