BRUNSWICK — The Bowdoin College Department of Theater and Dance will present Caryl Churchill’s play “Top Girls,” directed by Abigail Killeen, at 7 p.m. today and Saturday at Wish Theater, Memorial Hall.

“Set in early 1980s Britain, ‘Top Girls’ is both a celebration and a cautionary tale in a heady mix of theatrical style and form that asks, ‘ Can women have it all?’” a college release states. “Paralleling Margaret Thatcher’s economic deregulation with the ‘deregulation’ of traditional women’s roles, Churchill’s play examines the hidden and not-so-hidden costs to women who sacrifice it all — perhaps even their humanity — to make it to the top.”

Admission to all performances is free, but tickets are required.

Advance tickets are available at the David Saul Smith Union information desk on the Bowdoin College campus or by calling 725-3375.

Tickets are also available immediately before the show at the Pickard/ Wish box office.
