Top Girls is a wonderfully provocative study of powerful women in 80s Britain, revealing the compromises made in the quest for success, and what happens to those left behind.



Caryl Churchillís witty and daring landmark play Top Girls received rave reviews in a sold out run in Chichester and has now transferred to the West End for a strictly limited run.



Directed by Max Stafford-Clark and with tour-de-force performances from Stella Gonet, Suranne Jones (Coronation Street), Catherine McCormack, Lucy Briers, Laura Elphinstone, Lisa Kerr and Olivia Poulet, this critically acclaimed show is not to be missed.
