Top Girls

Texas State University’s Department of Theater and Dance will present Top Girls, a production by Caryl Churchill April 4-6 at 7:30 p.m. and April 7 at 2 p.m. in PSH Foundation Studio Theatre.

Directed by David Weynand, Top Girls features the story of Marlene, who is celebrating her promotion to managing director of a London employment agency. Her symbolic luncheon is attended by women from legend and 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 proletarian roots to the executive suite.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $7 for students with a valid Texas State ID, and may be purchases beginning April 1 at 10 a.m. at the Texas State Box Office.

Box office hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. April 1-3, 10 a.m.-7:30 p.m. April 4-6, 6 p.m.-7:30 p.m. April 6 and 12:30 p.m.-2 p.m. April 7.
