Caryl Churchill wrote the play Top Girls 30 years ago. Director at State Theatre, Catherine Fitzgerald, played the lead, Marlene, in Troupe Theatre’s 1986 production. She says the themes of women in the workplace, glass ceilings and the sacrifices made by career women are still as relevant. Ulli Birve plays Marlene in State’s new production, opening August 17th. Cath Kenneally spoke to her at rehearsal and asked whether this is a feminist play.
