 A B O U T

Caryl Churchill's landmark play brings some of the most notable women in history, art and literature together at the same table.

It's the eighties and women are beginning to break through the glass ceiling. It's Saturday night and Marlene is celebrating her promotion to Managing Director. Having little time for friends and family, she invites a cross-section of famous women to her party.

The result is a tapestry of female lives, the stories of a Victorian explorer crossing with the history of the only female Pope, a concubine from Japan, as well as the fictional Dull Gret and Patient Grisilde. They have suffered, they have loved and lost. But above all they have survived and can be proud of their achievements.
