Bull in a China ShopReturn

Playwright Bryna Turner Producer Aurora Theatre Company  [Website] Description Fierce feminist Mary Woolley becomes the president of Mount Holyoke College in 1901, on a crusade to stop training pious wives and start giving women a real education. The students respond, even starting a fan club for Woolley’s longterm romance with teacher Jeannette Marks. But leading a revolution from inside an institution isn’t easy, and neither is maintaining a relationship through years of challenges and change. Inspired by real letters between Woolley and Marks, this fast-paced comedy asks: What is revolution? What does it mean to be at odds with the world? And how the hell do we grow old together?

FOUR STARS "Bull in a China Shop does the sisterhood proud! Heartbreaking, hilarious and delectable."
