Upcoming Event

Found this on the ARM page (Association for Research on Mothering, listed in Link-O-Rama), thought I'd pass this event on. I've read 'Top Girls' before and found it very thought-provoking. There are quite a few remarkable actors in this production, so it'll definitely be a worthy night out. This listing is taken directly from ARM's page.
Interested in attending a fabulous dinner party with the most scintillating female guests, both real and imaginary, discussing the choices women make with regards to motherhood? The Association for Research on Mothering (ARM) you to join others at this special MOTHER OUTLAWS’DINNER and THEATRE EVENT:

A feminist revival of Caryl Churchill‘s TOP GIRLS
Tuesday, August 14, 2007 at 7:30 PM
Dinner before at 5:30 (see below)
Young Centre for the Performing Arts, Distillery District, 55 Mill Street
A Soul Pepper Production directed by Alisa Palmer

Featuring: Megan Follows, Kelli Fox, Dawn Greenhalgh, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Cara Pifko, Liisa Repo Martell, Robyn Stevan and Diana Donnelly.

Caryl Churchill is the most important female playwright of the British stage.

Top Girls, considered by many to be Churchill’s defining achievement, is both delightful comedy peppered with some of history’s most compelling women, and scorching political examination of the role of women in contemporary society.
Churchill brings together five figures from centuries past for a celebratory girls' night out. The guest list includes such disparate characters as Lady Nijo, a 13th-century Japanese courtesan; Patient Griselda, the obedient wife in Chaucer's "Clerk's Tale," and Pope Joan, a ninth-century cross-dresser. The link
among them all is a choice each has made concerning motherhood.

Book your tickets (prices range between $56/$41) to this event by directly contacting
the theatre at 416-866-8666 or

As befits a play that begins with a dinner party, dinner reservations are being
made for 5:30 pm at The Boiler House patio (next door to the Young Centre). For more information and to RSVP for the dinner, please contact Linn Baran at

Bon Apetit!
