CWRU drama series continues with Top Girls Feb. 23-26

Eliana Fabiyi and Rita Sirianni perform in Case Western Reserve's production of "Top Girls."

The 2011-12 drama series at Case Western Reserve University continues with Top Girls by Caryl Churchill. Evening performances continue this week at Eldred Theater: Feb. 23, 24 and 25 at 8 p.m., with a Sunday matinee Feb. 26 at 2:30 p.m.

Set in “Thatcherite Britain,” this play tells the story of Marlene, a strong, successful career woman who finds herself doubting her past choices. Churchill’s groundbreaking play explores the struggle women have endured since entering the industrial age workforce: balancing career and family.

The design team for the production includes scenic design by Jill Davis, assistant professor of theater; lighting design by Joseph Burke from Joe Burke Designs; costume design by Angelina Herin, assistant professor of theater; and sound design by Jason Kuster, an undergraduate theater major.
