Theater Pro Rata produces “Top Girls” by Caryl Churchill, a play that grapples with issues of gender roles, class, race, family obligations, victims, and how we measure success, according to a Pro Rata news release calling the production “witty and gripping.” “

“Top Girls” was written in the UK based on Margaret Thatcher’s election as Prime Minister and focuses on Marlene, a career-driven woman who is heavily invested in women’s success in business. Pro Ratas production is directed by Carin Bratlie Wethern.
