The purpose of this study is to examine representation of marginal female identities and how history is reinterpreted to demonstrate the constant position of women in Carly Churchill’s play Top Girls and Timberlake Wertenbaker’s play Our Country’s Good. It discusses the representation of women identities with an exploration of female subjectivity, “personal is political” feminism and the establishment of a new female self in a patriarchal society. Both Churchill and Wertenbaker draw attention to historical subjects and past time, which make the history play an important role in writing their dramas. 

Bu çalışmanın amacı Caryl Churchill’in Top Girls ve Timberlake Wertenbaker’ın Our Country’s Good adlı oyunlarında kadınların değişmez pozisyonlarını göstermek amacıyla marjinal kadın kimliklerinin ve tarihin nasıl yeniden yorumlandığını incelemektir. Bu çalışma, kadın öznelliğinin keşfedilmesiyle birlikte kadın kimliklerinin temsilini, “kişisel olan politiktir” feminizmi ve ataerkil toplumda yeni bir kadın özünün kuruluşunu tartışır. Hem Churchill hem de Wertenbaker oyunlarını yazarken tarihi konulara ve geçmiş zamana dikkat çekmiştirler.
