The Theater Division in Ohio University’s School of Dance, Film and Theater is proud to present the second production of the 2017–2018 season, “Top Girls,” by Caryl Churchill, directed by MFA candidate Allison Epperson and presented in the Elizabeth Evans Baker Theater, Kantner Hall, Nov. 2–4 and 8–11.

In “Top Girls,” Marlene has been promoted. During a celebratory luncheon in a time warp, women in legend and history offer perspectives on maternity, ambition and the price paid to ascend from proletarian roots to the executive suite.

Epperson directs her M.F.A. thesis project as the culmination of her degree in the Professional Director Training Program at Ohio University.

The student cast includes Erika Gellner, Daisy Bentley, Kristin Conrad, Summer Finley, Lauryn Glenn, Perri Olson, Carlie Meyers, Liv Wilson and Evie Weir.
