Theatre Trip to Top Girls

12 of us went to the sell out production of Caryl Churchill’s Top Girls at The Minerva, Chichester. This condemnation of Thatcher’s career women featured an all star female cast. The play opens with a scene in an upmarket restaurant where a group of women are celebrating Marlene’s (Suranne Jones) promotion to CEO of the employment agency Top Girls. Marlene’s friends are historical and mythical figures who had all achieved great things in spite of their sex but suffered as a consequence. Pope Joan was my personal favourite. It was a challenging but thought-provoking evening. My car-load talked about it non-stop all the way home to Felpham.
