A dysfunctional family we can all relate to.
A fierce, biting comedy about family, faith and what you choose to believe when you’re chosen. The night after their grandfather’s funeral, three cousins engage in an explosive battle that shows there is nothing like a death in the family to bring out the worst in people. In one corner is Daphna Feygenbaum, a “Real Jew” who is volatile, self-assured, and unbending. In the other is her equally stubborn cousin Liam, a secular young man with his shiksa girlfriend in tow. When a claim is staked to their grandfather’s chai necklace, a vicious and hilarious brawl over faith and family legacy ensues.

“Very funny and provocative…. A mind lifting experience.” N.Y. Post
The story of a successful career-driven superwoman in the early years of the 1980s in Margaret Thatcher’s England. Marlene has just earned a big promotion over a male co-worker. She and a restaurant full of history’s most famous women celebrate the virtue and bemoan the sacrifices required to be a “top girl” in a man’s world. In the episodes that follow, we meet many of the women (and girls) in Marlene’s world and learn the steep costs that often followed success of women in the 80s. It’s been 35 years yet Top Girls remains surprisingly relevant filled with questions we still are trying to answer.
