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
Pan Theater performs two sets a night in their main show. One set consists of short form comedy improv. The short form set provides plenty of humor and often a moment or two of drama. Hence they call it comma- comedy with elements of drama. The second set of the evening is long form improv focusing on drama but sure to have moments of comedy- yes...that is why they call it dramedy. The long form set is a mini-play that may tell a complete story or might explore a topic or theme.
Pan Theater performers come from all walks of life: teachers, students, professionals, artists and everything else. Truly: "Improv by the People for the People."
All shows are for mature audiences. We suggest those attending be 18 or above, or accompanied by a parent.
