What’s Happening around Rutgers – November 2019

“Top Girls” Theater Performance

Friday, November 1, 7:30 p.m.
Fine Arts Building, Walter K. Gordon Theater, Camden

The Rutgers–Camden theater program presents Top Girls. Hilarious and haunting, Caryl Churchill’s feminist masterpiece set in Margaret Thatcher’s England is a wildly innovative play about a country divided by its own ambitions. Marlene has reached the pinnacle of success as the head of the Top Girls Employment Agency—but at what price? Purchase tickets. (Additional shows on Saturday and Sunday.)
