Top girls by Caryl Churchill( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The play opens with an anachronistic dinner party hosted by Marlene, the newly-promoted manager of the Top Girls employment agency. Her guests are five women from the past: a transvestite Pope, a courtesan-cum-nun, a tireless adventurer, an obedient wife from Chaucer and the leader of a charge into hell from a Bruegel painting. The feminist themes introduced by this cacophonous scene echo throughout the more contemporary action of the play, as Churchill uses the setting of the T̀op Girls' agency to allow a glimpse into the lives of several very different working women
