In early 1980s Britain, Marlene finally achieves career success as a high-power executive with the Top Girls Employment Agency. Now what? Paralleling Margaret Thatcher’s economic deregulation with the “deregulation” of traditional women’s roles, Churchill's play examines the hidden and the not-so-hidden costs to women who sacrifice everything — perhaps even their humanity — to make it as Top Girls.
