TOP GIRLS follows the life and dreams of Marlene, a career-driven businesswoman who has risen to the top of her employment agency. Through interviews with prospective candidates, an absurdist dinner party with controversial women from history and conversations with her estranged family members and slick co-workers, Marlene explores the pain inherent in the inevitable choice between career success and strong family ties. In a world of the "Supermom" and a shattering glass ceiling, TOP GIRLS reveals the conflict that comes with the ultimately flawed desire to "have it all."

The production team for TOP GIRLS includes: Cailin Short* (scenic design), Catharine Young (costume design), Jason Hiett (lighting design), Matt Reich (sound design), Dustyn Martincich (movement direction), Katrina Dion and Vivian Ellis (assistant directors/dramaturgs) and Belinda Bing* (stage manager).
