Michaelmas Week 2
Marlene has just received a promotion at her job agency and she’s on top of the world. To celebrate, she hosts a dinner party for all her most interesting female friends. The strange part? Her guests include a thirteenth-century Buddhist monk, a Pope, and a figure from Flemish folk lore.
‘Top Girls’ explores Marlene’s rise to success in the Thatcherite 1980s, from surreal dinner party chat, her thriving job agency, and all the way back to the family she left behind, and questions whether successful women can truly be allowed to ‘have it all’.
