This fantastic play stars Marlene, a career-driven woman who is only interested in women's success in business. In the famous opening scene, she hosts a dinner party for a group of famous women from history. As the play unfolds we find Marlene has left her 'poor' life, and illegitimate child with her sister Joyce, in order to tread the path to 'success'. The play is a contemporary gem and examines the role of women in society and what being a successful woman means.
"A blistering yet sympathetic look at women who achieve success by adopting the worst traits of self-made men [...] Truly original." - The New York Times
"Very funny and provocative [...] A mind lifting experience." - The New York Post
