  • Watching Caryl Churchill

    Author of close to 50 plays, Caryl Churchill’s work focuses on themes of sexual politics, power, and societal structures. Arguably her most celebrated work, Top Girls was written in 1982, right after Churchill spent time in America and when Margaret Thatcher, the “Iron Lady,” was in office. The politics of Churchill, known as a second wave feminist with an anti-colonial perspective, was in complete opposition to Thatcher, an advocate for free markets and a small state.
