A sexy, smart comedy about the history of women's education

Bull in a China Shop by Bryna Turner is a vibrant comedy about two fierce women who blazed a new trail for women’s education at the height of the suffrage movement. Inspired by the real letters of Mary Woolley and Jeanette Marks, Bull in a China Shop gallops through forty years at Mount Holyoke College, following the women as they navigate their ambitions, idealism, and feminine power with equal parts comedic punch and dramatic heft. The triumphant debut of playwright Bryna Turner, this utterly un-stuffy history lesson reminds us that when we work to change the world, it changes us right back. Bull in a China Shop premiered at LCT3 in New York City in February 2017 and was chosen as a critic’s pick by The New York Times.
