Caryl Churchill’s Top Girls comes to Pierce College under the direction of Shaheen Vaaz.

This all female cast production highlights the life altering decisions women in society have to face, whether to become a mother and raise a family or follow their dreams.  

The play takes place in the 1980’s in England.

According to the Top Girls poster, the play is “an insightful commentary on bourgeois feminism, this bold and ingenious work offers one of theatre’s most honest portraits of what it means to be a woman in the modern world.”

Top Girls opens Friday Oct. 19 at 8 p.m. at the Dow Arena Theatre, with other showings on Oct. 19, 20, 26 and 27 at 8 p.m. and Oct. 21 and 28 at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at www.brownpapertickets.com
