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

Del Shores' A Sordid Affair is headlined by Sordid Lives mastermind Del Shores who tells tales from his sold-out stand-up tour and more.
The show opens with a special San Francisco stop of Top 20 Billboard recording artist Jason Dottley's Nation of Jason Tour 2011.
Del's special guests include everybody's favorite "Aunt LaVonda" Ann Walker, Rosemary Alexander ("Dr. Eve") and Newell Alexander ("Wardell"), along with Jason Dottley ("Ty"). Get ready for a night of dish and dirt in this very Sordid evening of laughter and music.
