Absorbing, provocative and illuminative,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Top Girls by Caryl Churchill [DVD] (DVD)
Although I purchased this primarily for the production itself, which would have been impressive and satisfying on a stand-alone basis, what makes this invaluable is the additional material: the interviews with Caryl Churchill, director Max Stafford-Clark, and the actors from the 1982 and 1991 productions, as well as two academics. Their contributions address issues across the board,: the evolution of the text, the adaptation for TV, characterization, theme, direction, questions of style and genre. One example which illustrates this: one of the actors who appeared in both the original 1982 production referred to her notes/diary in which her character was "colder" than in the 1991 production, giving us insight into how actors and director may approach the play - and that they may do so differently at different times. Highly recommended.
