Caryl Churchill

Published by Samuel French Ltd

0 Male 7 Female

Marlene has been promoted to managing director of a London employment agency and is celebrating

The symbolic luncheon is attended by women in legend or history who offer perspectives on maternity and ambition

In a time warp, these ladies are also her co workers, clients and relatives

Marlene, like her famous guests, has had to pay a price to ascend from proletarian roots to the executive suite

She has become, figuratively speaking, a male oppressor and even coaches female clients on adopting odious male traits

Marlene has also abandoned her illegitimate and dull witted daughter

And her emotional and sexual life has become as barren as Lady Macbeth's


"Very funny and provocative ... A mind lifting experience" ~ N.Y. Post

"A blistering yet sympathetic look at women who achieve success by adopting the worse traits of self made men ... Truly original" ~ N.Y. Times
