9781408106037: Top Girls (Student Editions)

Caryl Churchill: 'A dramatist who must surely be rated among the half-dozen best now writing... a playwright of genuine audacity and assurance, able to use her considerable wit and intelligence in ways at once unusual, resonant and dramatically riveting' Benedict Nightingale, New Statesman

'Ms Churchill is one of our best writers... her play is brilliantly conceived with considerable wit to illuminate the underlying deep human seriousness of her theme' Bryan Robertson, Spectator

Set in the early Thatcher years, Top Girls is a serminal play of the modern theatre, revealing a world of women's experience at a pivotal moment in British history. Told by an eclectic group of historical and modern characters in a continuous conversation across ages and generations, Top Girls was hailed as 'the best British play ever by a woman dramatist' (Guardian).

Commentary and notes by Bill Naismith and Nick Worrall

From AudioFile:

When the curtain rises, Marlene has just gotten a promotion and is celebrating with a group of overachieving women of history. Next comes a montage of her at the employment agency where she works. Finally, comes a tense reunion with her sister and the daughter Marlene abandoned. This celebrated allegorical stage play of 1982 presents several difficulties for the audio producer. It requires eight women on mike at once, and much of the dialogue overlaps. Without visual cues, how to keep things clear? It helps to have a terrific cast, such as this one. Unfortunately, the director's focus on his live audience works better for them than for his audiobook listeners, who may experience moments of confusion.
