About the Play:

Bull in a China Shop is a full-length comedy by Bryna Turner. Spanning 40 years in a New England women's college, Bull in a China Shop is a modern spin on the true story of two women in love who revolutionized education and helped birth the women's equality movement in America during the early 20th Century. 

Bull in a China Shop depicts the lives, loves, and political and romantic struggles of Mary Woolley, president of a New England women's college from 1901 to 1937, and her partner, Professor Jeannette Marks. The title refers to Woolley's reputation as an activist who freely spoke her mind. Galloping through forty years at Mount Holyoke College, Bull in a China Shop follows Mary Woolley and Jeannette Marks as they reform and revolutionize women's education at the height of the suffrage movement. As evolving ambitions fan-adoration, and the price of joining the establishment strain the couple's relationship, this fast-paced feminist comedy with whiplash dialogue asks: What is revolution? What does it mean to be at odds with the world? How do we fulfill our potential? How the hell – as Bryna Turner's character would put it – do we grow old together?

Bull in a China Shop premiered in 2017 Off-Broadway at LCT3/Lincoln Center Theater in New York City and was a resounding success, garnering sold-out shows and an extended run. Since then the play had regional premieres at professional theatres across the US and has been mounted by college theatres.
