Production Information: The School of Theatre Arts Workshop Production Series presents “Top Girls” by Caryl Churchill, directed by Meg Tully.  Marlene is a successful businesswoman in the Top Girls employment agency.  While celebrating her recent promotion with a group of legendary women, she takes a moment to see just how far she has come.  This allegorical tale explores the strides women have made in the workplace, and questions whether or not “getting ahead” is worth the toll it takes on one’s humanity and the ability to care for others.  Adult language and mature themes.


The Workshop Production Series complements the Arizona Repertory Theatre’s professional training programs in classical and musical theatre.  Comprised of staged readings as well as fully mounted productions, the Series often provides student directors, performers, designers and technicians with their first chance to share their passion and talent with an audience.  Open to all theatre majors in the school, the Workshop Productions are designed to allow these young artists an opportunity to participate in staging new works, finding new voices for traditional theatre pieces, and experimenting with new theatrical styles.
