Featuring a post-screening conversation with guests from the Huntington Theatre Company's production of Caryl Churchill's groundbreaking masterpiece Top Girls.

Nominated for six Academy Awards, director Mike Nichols' witty, romantic look at life in the corporate jungle stars Melanie Griffith as Tess McGill, an ambitious secretary with a unique approach for climbing the ladder to success. When her classy but villainous boss (Sigourneey Weaver) breaks a leg skiing, Tess simply takes over her office, her apartment, and even her wardrobe. She then creates a deal with a handsome investment banker (Harrison Ford) that will either take her straight to the top - or finish her off for good.

After the screening of Working Girl, guests from the Huntington's new production of Top Girls will discuss how both works address the challenges faced by working women in the 1980s as well as today.
