For the first time the National Theatre will stage Top Girls, Caryl Churchill’s wildly innovative play about a country divided by its own ambitions.

Marlene is the first woman to head the Top Girls employment agency. But she has no plans to stop there. With Maggie in at Number 10 and a spirit of optimism
consuming the country, Marlene knows that the future belongs to women like her.

The cast includes Liv Hill (Angie), Katherine Kingsley (Marlene), Wendy Kweh (Lady Nijo), Amanda Lawrence (Pope Joan), Ashley McGuire (Dull Gret), Ashna Rabbheru (Kit) and Siobhan Redmond (Isabella Bird) with further cast to be announced.

Collaborating for the first time since Light Shining in Buckinghamshire, NT Associate Lyndsey Turner directs. With set design by Ian MacNeil, costume design by Merle Hensel, lighting design by Jack Knowles and sound design by Christopher Shutt.

Top Girls previews from 26 March, with a press night on 3 April, on sale until 22 April with further performances to be announced.
