ATC's Top Girls

The Aeneid Theatre Company is a student theatre company devoted to independently producing upstanding plays at USC.  We are incredibly thrilled to start off 2020 with Caryl Churchill's Top Girls!

Because we are a student organization, we don't have the funding and support that other, long-standing production companies possess. We need your help to get our company off the ground and onto the stage, and contributors like you can make all the difference in the world.

With your help, ATC can make a real impact within the USC theatre community for all the students involved.

The production team has spent a lot of time carefully creating a budget for the production. All money raised will go directly to funding these essential costs.

We need YOUR HELP. Every dollar raised helps us reach our goal.

If you're totally broke and don't have a couple dollars to spare right now, that's okay! You can still help in other ways. Most importantly, you can share this page on all your social media profiles and help spread the word to as many people as possible! And of course, please come to our show! 

About the Show: In 1980s England, Marlene is a woman who is willing to get to the top no matter what the cost. To celebrate her recent promotion, Marlene throws a dinner party, with several famous women from history, literature, and legend in attendance. Taking place at a revolutionary moment for a woman’s role in the workplace, Marlene is confronted with the realities of what it takes for a woman to reach the top, and all the sacrifices she has to make to be a top girl.
