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

Amazingly creative performance that interacts with the audience and has you moving to several locales around Ft. Mason (where warm clothes and comfy shoes as you will be outside for the walks). Dance, theater, live and recorded music, art installations, lighting, and av are all performed with gusto and meld in a very interesting way. Check it out while it's still here - ONLY ONE MORE WEEKEND LEFT!

Really interesting, terrific way of spending the evening... Fort Mason is a terrific venue and Ophelia was convincingly and clearly anguished and maddened by the men in her former life.... be strong..... engaging, multi-sensory experience
