BULL IN A CHINA SHOP
By Bryna Turner
Directed by AFT Artistic Associate Keira Fromm
May 24 – June 30, 2018 at Theater Wit
BULL IN A CHINA SHOP explores the fascinating lives of Mary Woolley and her partner, Jeannette Marks, two brilliant women who reimagined and revolutionized women's education at the turn of the twentieth century. This fast-moving feminist comedy chronicles the growth of the women's suffrage movement, as well as Mary and Jeannette's romantic relationship. It examines the strength it takes to find your voice, be brave and find yourself less at odds with the world.
