Theater at Case Western Reserve University continues the 2011-2012 drama series with Top Girls, by Caryl Churchill. Performances are February 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25 at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinees on February 19 and 26 at 2:30 p.m. Eldred Theater is located at 2070 Adelbert Rd., on the Case Quad behind Millis Science Center.
Set in Thatcherite Britain, this play is the story of Marlene, a strong, successful career woman who finds herself doubting her past choices. Churchill’s ground-breaking play explores the struggles that women have had since entering the industrial age workforce: can you have a career and a family?
