Max Stafford-Clark and Caryl Churchill in Top Girls at Trafalgar Studios

Max Stafford-Clark and Caryl Churchill are re-united once again for the smash-hit transfer of Top Girls.  Suranne Jones (Coronation Street) stars in this provocative study of powerful women in Thatcher’s Britain.

The critics are raving that this powerful and brilliant new production substantiates Top Girls as one of the great modern classics.

It’s Thatcher’s England and hard-nosed businesswoman Marlene is hosting a dinner party to celebrate her promotion to MD of the Top Girls Employment Agency. Her guests – all powerful women from myth and history – create an extraordinary gathering. 

A provocative study of powerful women in Thatcher’s Britain, the play examines the compromises made by women in the quest for success, and what happens to those left behind.

Starring Stella Gonet, Suranne Jones, Catherine McCormack, Lucy Briers, Laura Elphinstone, Lisa Kerr and Olivia Poulet.
