The Tower Theatre Company
by Caryl Churchill
Directed by Marta Dunphy-Moriel
Choices, choices, choices ... you can have anything you want, just not all at the same time.
Career-driven Marlene is only interested in women's success in business. Her sister Joyce is a stay at home mum with a difficult teenage daughter.
Marlene throws a dinner to celebrate her promotion and her guests talk about their lives and achievements. But these are not just any women; each is a historical, fictional or mythical woman who has faced adversity and suffered bitterly to attain her goals; determined women who won and lost, who suffered ... and many a time at the hands of other women. Exploring love, religion, sex, equality, politics, class, intellect and more, this critically-acclaimed play poses dreaded unanswered question to the characters and to the audience alike : was it worth it?
