Top Girls @ Burnside Library
Top Girls by Caryl Churchill.

Earlier this year, coinciding with the National Year of Reading 2012 program, an extraordinary event was held by the Burnside Library in association with The State Theatre Company to showcase Tennessee William's The Glass Menagerie. Interested theatre lovers gathered to hear the director and cast discuss the play and their roles in a friendly informative get-together.

Due to the success of that evening, another special event will be held to showcase the 1982 play by Caryl Churchill, Top Girls. Once again, members of the public who especially enjoy theatre will be able to meet the director and cast members, who will discuss the play and their roles and will be available to answer questions.

In 1982 Top Girls won the Obie Award for best play and helped establish her reputation as an important playwright. It is a contemporary play which examines the role of women in society and what it means to be a successful woman. Churchill raises many tough questions during Top Girls including what success is and if women's progress in the workplace has been a bad or good thing.
