Caryl Churchill’s Top Girls had its premiere at the Royal Court Theatre in 1982. Taking Top Girls as its point of departure, Professor Elaine Aston’s talk will look back to feminism in the Eighties and forward to now, offering a series of reflections on its role in theatre to illuminate how women playwrights such as Caryl Churchill play their part in agitating for change to persistent inequalities.
Elaine Aston is Professor of Theatre at Lancaster University. She has published widely on feminism and theatre. Her work includes a book on Caryl Churchill, published by Northcote House in 1997 and now in its third edition, and the co-editorship of The Cambridge Companion to Caryl Churchill (2009).
