Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Top Girls has a combination of directness and complexity which keeps you both emotionally and intellectually alert. You can smell life and at the same time feel locked in an argument with an agile and passionate mind.” —Sunday Times

“Ms. Churchill is one of the best writers...her play is brilliantly conceived with considerable wit to illuminate the underlying deep human seriousness of her theme.” —Spectator

“A dramatist who must surely be rated among the half-dozen best now writing a playwright of genuine audacity and assurance, able to use her considerable wit and intelligence in ways at once unusual, resonant and dramatically riveting.” —New Statesman

Meet the Author

Caryl Churchill is a major contemporary British dramatist and features prominently in numerous books on modern "Feminist" or "Political" theatre, but she is careful not to be pinned down to any limiting definitions. The variety of her subject matter, the constant experiment with form and her challenge to conventional role models defy attempts to restrict the scope of her drama.
