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

About the Ticket Supplier: Second Wind ProductionsNow in its 24th year, Second Wind Productions has performed from San Francisco to Edinburgh, Scotland. Its production of The Gravedigger's Tango was called "fascinating, classy, invigorating, and smart," by The San Francisco Examiner. "Effortlessly enthralls... gripping suspense deftly rendered," writes the SF Bay Times of Second Wind's production of The Woman in Black. And the Marin Independent writes, "Second Wind has a goal that is rare in today's bottom-line theatre world: to use the stage to explore social and political issues that impact ordinary American lives."
Second Wind is dedicated to theatre that approaches social and political issues from the human perspective. They embrace the tradition of theater as an instrument of both education and catharsis.
