Event Image "Top Girls"
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

Director: Susan Coromel

A skeptical and comical look at the role of women in contemporary society from one of Britain's greatest theatrical innovators. The action swings from smart Thatcher-era London women's employment agency to a cottage in rural East Anglia, as it considers the sacrifices and compromises women have to make to carve out a place for themselves. Overlapping dialogue, inventive doubling of characters, and the most unusual dinner party you'll ever see combine to create a truly memorable evening.
