Top Girls by Caryl Churchill (Part 1)
Sun. 3/3 6p: When Margaret Thatcher became the first female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in May of 1979, feminists around the world wondered whether this would be a watershed moment for women in leadership.
But Thatcher’s Conservative politics led others to ask whether simply changing the players
was enough, when the games of power and politics remained largely the same.
Our story this week and next examines the compromises made by women throughout history in the struggle to survive and succeed.
With Carolyn Seymour, Concetta Tomei, Megan Austin Oberle, Kirsten Potter, Samantha Robson, Kate Steele, and Missy Yager. Directed by John Rubinstein.
A production of LA Theatre Works.
