The first day of using language added a separate and unique dimension to the way of living. Language is a power, a revolutionary power. As it helps one to communicate with other, it helps to hide his or her desires as well. At the same time, it can create discourse which may evoke a challenge. The language of Churchill’s play Top Girls has expressed women’s unrequited desires, their struggle to achieve those desires in a patriarchal society and their ultimate achievement. In this paper I will try to analyze how the playwright has changed the language of the theatre through the game and playfulness of language from feminist point of view and offered a new voice to the English stage.
Key Words: Language, Communication, Discourse, Feminism, Patriarchy, Top Girls, Game.
