Marlene has been promoted to managing director of a London employment agency and is celebrating. The symbolic luncheon is attended by women in legend or history who offer perspectives on maternity and ambition. In a time warp, these ladies are also her co-workers, clients and relatives. Marlene, like her famous guests, has had to pay a price to ascend from working-class roots to the executive suite. “Top Girls” explores the power of being a woman and both the strengths and challenges that women face in our world.
“Top Girls” features a dynamic all-female cast under the direction of Ponny Conomos Jahn and was written by Caryl Churchill.
Top Girls runs from May 23-25 at 8 p.m., May 26 at 2 p.m., May 30-31 at 8 p.m., and June 1 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $21-$22.50, $14 for children. For tickets and information, call 724-745-6300 or visit www.littlelake.org.
