“Breathtaking . . . a masterful work”
—The Washington Post
“One of the most resonant theatrical set pieces of the past 50 years”
—The New York Times
Shattering the glass ceiling doesn’t come without a few injuries. It’s 1980s Britain and nothing will stop Marlene’s ascent from working girl to top exec. Not the sniveling, jealous male coworker. Not the family birthdays she’ll miss. Not even other women. In the race to the top, there’s no time for sisterhood.
Written by Caryl Churchill (Love and Information), one of the English language’s greatest living playwrights, and directed by Tamilla Woodard (Men on Boats) in her return to A.C.T., this modern classic dissects the cost of progress in a world divided by class, cruelty, and capitalism.
