Caryl Churchill's 1982 play Top Girls has so much to say about women that it is staggering to realize that it is no less relevant thirty-seven years later. However it speaks to today, it does so from within an elliptical, non-linear narrative structure emblematic of the time of its creation.

Culture is what unites us. Music, poetry, art, science, medicine, politics, faith, and values. Culture is also what divides us (see the previous list of examples). With the culture wars intensifying and norms changing faster than you can say 'where's my tribe?', who better to guide us through what 'culture' actually is - how it evolves and who benefits - than a middle class, white, science rapper from Canada?

Can we learn to control our impulses before they control us? Conversely, and perhaps even more importantly: can we learn to let them flow when it really matters? Parts of your brain give you impulses and desires, whilst other parts of the same mysterious organ slam on the brakes, based on your long-term goals and society's expectations. Living a productive life in modern society necessitates the regulation of a lot of impulses. But then creativity and spontaneity sometimes require us to let them off the leash. So, which is better?

Caryl Churchill's ground-breaking 1982 work comes to the National for the first time - and, also a first, with a full cast rather than actors doubling up, as the playwright had originally intended.

Tony Award-nominated director Liesl Tommy (A RAISIN IN THE SUN, MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM, RUINED) returns to the Huntington Theatre Company to lead a stellar, diverse cast in prolific British playwright Caryl Churchill's TOP GIRLS. Written in 1982 as a diatribe against Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's anti-union administration in England, the themes of Churchill's outspoken feminist play remain relevant and all too familiar more than three decades later. In addition to choosing actors outside the box of white, British women, Liesl also fields a creative team of designers which is almost exclusively female.
