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
There's a lot across the street for $15, but there are also plenty of metered (but free in the evening) spaces available. Just like you would in any other neighborhood in the city, do not leave ~anything~ and I mean absolutely anything visible inside your vehicle.travel • Aug 12 2013 star this tip starred
Reviews & Ratings
In New York, Susan (Emma Rose Shelton) and Regina (Sylvia Hathaway) are re-united for the first time after a decade of not speaking, and over lunch they dance around the possibility of rekindling their friendship. In Oakland, long-distance friends Imogen (Emma Rose Shelton) and Jenny (Sylvia Hathaway) are having lunch during Imogen's visit to the Bay Area following the birth of Jenny's first child and the publication of Imogen's book about their mutual past. On a train between Oakland and New York, Lisa (Allison Page) and Deva (Megan Briggs), who have been attending the same yoga class for the last year, negotiate taking their budding friendship to a deeper level. In separate places, Pauline (Megan Briggs) and Vera (Allison Page) each contemplate the end of their romantic relationship with one another, and how we process a relationship that has run its course.
The Age of Beauty tracks how we change, how we grow apart, how we grow back together again, and how our perceptions of each other bridge or create the distance between any two people at any given time in our lives.
