Publisher's Summary

It's the middle of the high-flying, go-getting 80s in Maggie Thatcher's England, and Marlene has something to celebrate: she has just been made managing director of the Top Girls Employment Agency. But with no friends to speak of, and a past she'd just as soon forget, the guests at Marlene's party are a collection of famous women from history. Soon Marlene discovers that life above the glass ceiling is not all it's cracked up to be. This is a bold, searing comedy from an Olivier Award-winning playwright.

Superb Prduction of an Outstanding Play

Would you listen to Top Girls (Dramatized) again? Why?

Yes. Dramas are ideal for the audiobook experience. Caryl Churchill's dialog lavishes the barbs on her women as well as the absent men. For a work which features nothing but woman players, men are just as conspicuous and affected as well.

What other book might you compare Top Girls (Dramatized) to and why?

Churchill's play, 'Cloud 9' comes to mind, though 'Top Girls' is by far the stronger work, There are resemblances as well between 'Top Girls' and Shaw's 'Pygmalion'.
