1980s London. Shoulder pads, power dressing and Maggie Thatcher. This is The Corporation of Me.

High-flying Marlene has eviscerated the glass ceiling. She’s finally landed the top job and is taking the girls out to celebrate. As the wine flows freely, so does the talk. Of the fickleness of men, the pleasures of sex, the price of achievement. This material girl may have made sacrifices while climbing the corporate ladder, but they’re all worth it, aren’t they?

Thirty years on, Caryl Churchill’s timeless masterpiece continues to trigger questions about gender politics, corporate culture and moral compromise. Danielle Cormack leads an all-female ensemble in this theatrically audacious, strikingly relevant take on what it means to be a woman in the modern world.

Provocative and total entertainment.

I don’t wear trousers in the office. I could, but I don’t.
