Initial casting for the National Theatre’s production of Caryl Churchill’s Top Girls includes Liv Hill (Angie), Katherine Kingsley (Marlene), Wendy Kweh (Lady Nijo), Amanda Lawrence (Pope Joan), Ashley McGuire (Dull Gret), Ashna Rabbheru (Kit) and Siobhan Redmond (Isabella Bird).
The production, directed by NT Associate Lyndsey Turner previews from 26 March 2019, with a press night on 3 April, and is currently on sale until 22 April with further performances to be announced.
This is the first time the National Theatre will have staged Churchill’s wildly innovative play about a country divided by its own ambitions.
Marlene is the first woman to head the Top Girls employment agency. But she has no plans to stop there. With Maggie in at Number 10 and a spirit of optimism consuming the country, Marlene knows that the future belongs to women like her.
Set design is by Ian MacNeil, costume design by Merle Hensel, lighting design by Jack Knowles and sound design by Christopher Shutt.
