"Top Girls for a new generation"
A multimedia gesamtkunstwerk that shows the high definition foibles of the ladies in front of the American Television camera. The play brings together celebrity, luminary ladies in a real dreamscape – Oprah, Annie Liebovitz, and Ann Curry cross paths via an imagined and fantastical transatlantic flight through a spiritualized and lyrical contemporary zeitgeist.
